CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – New England Patriots training camp is underway, and fans are getting excited for the regular-season.
Patriots fans saw a few new faces during day one of training camp but the Patriots have earned the respect of being Super Bowl Champions.
And with former tight end Rob Gronkowski retired, Patriots fans are still hopeful for yet another Super Bowl win.
“Usually every year, the Patriots are contenders for the Super Bowl,” said Sam Garcia of Easthampton. “That’s going to be my expectation again even without Gronk. Thanks to Brady and Belichick and the rest of those guys.”
Fans told 22News, they expect the Patriots to take full advantage of their regular-season schedule with Head Coach Bill Belichick and 6-time Super Bowl Champion quarterback Tom Brady leading the team.
