|Brandon LaFell posts a doughnut in debut |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(9/7/14) Patriots wide receiver Brandon LaFell made no impact in his team debut Sunday, in a 33-20 Week 1 loss.
Tom Brady looked LaFell's way six times in the passing game, but the two had trouble hooking up in their first game together. LaFell caught none of the passes thrown his way in the loss, and will look for better success in Week 2 against the Vikings.

|Tom Brady building rapport with Brandon LaFell |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(8/6/14) New Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell was plagued by drops at the start of camp, but he's come on strong lately. In Tuesday's joint practice with the Redskins, he fought off De'Angelo Hall's jam at the line to catch a slant and made a brilliant one-handed grab on a go route, reports CSNNE.com.
"He keeps making more plays," quarterback Tom Brady said. "He’s understanding better and better. He’s a veteran. He’s savvy, knows how to run the routes, big body, big frame, makes a lot of tough catches."
Brady said he appreciates having a bigger receiver to throw to. LaFell is 6-3, 210 pounds.
"Absolutely," Brady said. "I've got some of the little pygmies out there like Julian [Edelman] and Danny [Amendola] and it’s nice to have a little bigger guy out there from time to time who has a bigger catch radius. Hopefully Danny and Julian don’t get mad at me for saying that. They won’t. They know I’m joking."
|Brandon LaFell adjusting to life in New England |
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(6/9/14) Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell is trying to get adjusted to being in New England, reports the Boston Herald.
"Yeah, it's spinning, man," LaFell said. "It's been the craziest two or three months of my life."
The Patriots signed LaFell in March to a three-year, $9 million deal. He spent the previous four seasons with the Panthers. The hope is that he will add a dimension to the offense that is currently lacking with Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman and Aaron Dobson as the top options.
He's learning the new offense on the go, which has been an adjustment.
"We're throwing in a whole lot of plays every day," LaFell said. "At the same time you're a professional, man. You gotta be able to do it. There's going to be times during the season when we come in on Monday and throw in eight plays, come back in on Thursday and throw in another eight. It's pretty much getting us prepared for the season. The harder it is now, the easier it will be on Sunday."
|Brandon LaFell going 'half-speed' as he learns offense |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(6/6/14) Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell said he's going about "half-speed" as he learns a complex new offense. "I’m used to running a numbers system and now I’m back to code words, so, it’s a lot [to absorb]," the 6-2, 210-pounder told reporters after Thursday’s OTA practice.
"It’s been a grind so far, man, trying to learn this new playbook, my new teammates.
"The quicker I can learn this offense, the quicker I can go out there and be reliable and play fast, knowing what I’m doing. Now, I’m kind of playing at half-speed because I’m thinking so much. The quicker I can learn, the better I can help this team. I’ve learned a lot, but I’m nowhere near where I want to be yet."
Report: Panthers work out former Jets WR Stephen Hill
Stephen Hill, who has speed to burn but never consistently caught passes thrown to him in New York, will work out with the Panthers, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.

2014 Draft Prep: The WR landscape
How should owners approach the very deep wide receiver position on Draft Day? Our Jamey Eisenberg shares his favorites, his potential busts and the latest draft trends for the position.
|Brandon LaFell joined the Patriots this offseason after four disappointing years with the Panthers. Though he had over 600 yards in each of his last three seasons, he never got past 700. He's posted five plays for 40-plus yards in those three years, and while his touchdowns have improved over in that trio of seasons, he's never had more than five in a season. Changing squads might jumpstart his opportunities as the Patriots were in serious need of stability on the outside last season. If LaFell's sharing the field with underneath receivers like Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola and a beastly tight end like Rob Gronkowski, then LaFell should find single coverage often. That combined with Tom Brady firing passes at him makes LaFell fairly appealing. He's worth a late-round pick in drafts on the hope he breaks out with the Pats.
