Watch Patriots stars Tom Brady, Julian Edelman play catch at Boston College

Watch Patriots stars Tom Brady, Julian Edelman play catch at Boston College

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Julian Edelman are hard at work this offseason, and the two were spotted playing catch Tuesday at Boston College.

Check out the video below showing Brady firing a deep pass to Edelman.

Brady and Edelman were last seen together on a football field in Super Bowl LIII against the Los Angeles Rams in February. Edelman caught 11 passes for 141 yards and earned Super Bowl MVP honors

The 13-3 victory was Brady's sixth Super Bowl championship -- the most for any one player in NFL history. 

Training camp at Gillette Stadium won't start until later in the summer, but with Brady and Edelman both in the Boston area right now, it makes sense to work out with each other and keep developing their impressive on-field chemistry.

Bucs uniforms: Tampa Bay unveils classic look for Tom Brady's arrival

Bucs uniforms: Tampa Bay unveils classic look for Tom Brady's arrival

You didn't think Tom Brady would play in those uniforms, did you?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers officially underwent a facelift Tuesday, revealing new uniforms for the 2020 season.

Here's the Bucs' video unveiling the uniforms:

These are pretty sharp, and they're a nod to the classic threads the team wore during the 2002 season, the last time they won a Super Bowl.

Among the main differences are a new black alternate uniform and a larger Buccaneers logo on the side of the helmet.

The Bucs, who are slated to host Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium, are hoping Brady can lead them back to the promised land -- or at least end their 12-year playoff drought.

The former New England Patriots quarterback, meanwhile, will keep No. 12 thanks to the generosity of wide receiver Chris Godwin (who, awkwardly enough, appears in the above video wearing No. 12).

We'd imagine Brady is happy he doesn't have to wear those garish uniforms with the robot-like numbers that Tampa Bay has donned for the last few seasons.

And considering the Bucs' merchandise sales spiked even before they revealed the new threads, we'd imagine their new No. 12 jerseys will sell like hotcakes.

Could buzz around Dolphins make Tua Tagovailoa an option for Patriots?

Could buzz around Dolphins make Tua Tagovailoa an option for Patriots?

The first few picks of the 2020 NFL Draft seemed predetermined.

The Cincinnati Bengals would take LSU quarterback Joe Burrow at No. 1, and the Miami Dolphins would either trade up to No. 2 to select Tua Tagovailoa or hope the Alabama QB fell to them at No. 5.

But Tagovailoa to Miami apparently is far from a sure thing.

ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. wrote Tuesday there's "some buzz" around Oregon QB Justin Herbert going to the Dolphins. That's after a report surfaced last week that Miami could try to trade up to the No. 1 pick to take Burrow.

Why the Dolphins' apparent cold feet with Tagovailoa?

The 22-year-old insists he's fully recovered from a broken hip, but as Kiper points out, Miami's team doctors can't conduct their own in-person assessment on his health due to the coronavirus pandemic restricting travel.

That's where the Patriots come in. With 12 picks in this year's draft, including No. 23 overall, New England in theory could consider trading up to draft Tagovailoa, whose college coach, Nick Saban, has a strong connection to Bill Belichick.

The Boston Globe's Ben Volin resurfaced that idea Tuesday after initially floating it last week.

The Patriots drafting a QB isn't far-fetched; while our Tom E. Curran has reported they're confident in Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer as their QB duo in 2020, the Patriots still could draft a high-upside arm to compete with Stidham in training camp and potentially take the reins if the 23-year-old regresses.

But is Tagovailoa the right fit, and does New England have the draft capital to land him? Even if the Dolphins don't take Tua at No. 5, it's hard to see the QB-needy Los Angeles Chargers passing on him at No. 6.

The Patriots only have two picks in the top 90 (Nos. 23 and 87), so a jump up to No. 6 likely would require them to include a current player in the deal.

As recent history has shown, trading up in the first round to draft a QB can pay off in a big way. It's unclear whether Tagovailoa is worth the risk, but the option seemingly is there for New England.
