For the first time since their Super Bowl LII loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on February 4, the New England Patriots will take the field as a team Monday as they begin organized team activities.

Whether Etling (seventh round, LSU) can legitimately challenge Hoyer for the No. 2 job remains to be seen, but this is an early opportunity for him to make an impression with practice repetitions he might otherwise not have seen. Unless and until Brady wins another Super Bowl, stories like this will consume the Patriots faithful.
