Listen to the premiere of CSN's "The Ex-Pats Podcast" with Mike Giardi, Monday Night Patriots co-host and former Patriots center Dan Koppen, and Quick Slants co-host and former lineback Jerod Mayo.
In Episode 1, we (of course) look at Jimmy Garoppolo’s first-career NFL start, a 23-21 win at Arizona to open the 2016 season. Koppen offers his analysis of the play of the offensive line, which was without three starters. And Mayo looks at the defensive effort that limited Arizona to 21 points at home.

Patriots seven-time Pro Bowl special teamer Matthew Slater is in Pittsburgh on Saturday making a free-agent visit to the rival Steelers, according to an ESPN's Field Yates.
Slater, who turns 33 in September, has spent the past 10 seasons in a New England. The special teams captain and one of the leaders in the locker room signed a one-year, $1.8 million contract extension in 2016.
The Patriots lost special teamer Johnson Bademosi to the Texans in free agency on Friday but signed special teamers Brandon Bolden and Brandon King just before the free agency period began.
