Patriots Notes: Schedule, Ingram, Parcells...
--Draft prospect Mark Ingram of Alabama informed followers on his Twitter account that he was heading to Boston, indicating an official visit and workout with the Patriots.
Ingram might be the pick of choice for New England considering Belichick's relationship with Alabama coach Nick Saban. The main concern is Ingram's surgically-repaired knee, which is something the Patriots more than likely inquired about during their visit.
--The Patriots recently announced their three finalists for the team's Hall of Fame: DL Houston Antwine, QB Drew Bledsoe and coach Bill Parcells. Members of the media selected the finalists. This is the first year of eligibility for Bledsoe and Parcells and the third year Antwine has been a finalist. Fans vote on who ultimately makes it into the Hall.
QUOTE TO NOTE: "I don't really think I had a whole lot to do with that but I think the one thing I would say that was helpful, we were able to put, during the course of my time there - Drew Bledsoe, Troy Brown, Tedy Bruschi, Curtis Martin, Adam Vinatieri, Terry Glenn - we were able to put those players on the team to go with (Ben) Coates and (Bruce) Armstrong and (Maurice) Hurst. That was the beginning of some personnel continuity and some of those kids have gone on to be some of the great players in Patriots history so I do take some pride in that." -- Former NFL coach Bill Parcells on his induction into the Patriots Hall of Fame and his role in helping rebuild the franchise.
MEDICAL WATCH: No updates.
