Some New England Patriots don't have to worry about their place on the team next year.
Tom Brady? Rob Gronkowski? Vince Wilfork? Don't worry. You're all set.
Most of the players on the team, however, will have their roles judged at the tail end of summer by Bill Belichick and staff. Some are guaranteed places on the team, but their positions' depth charts just need to be decided. Others are Patriots for now, but that can easily change before next September.
Some positions have a few spots set, and the battle will be between a few players. With other positions, everyone's in a fight for their job. The whole thing is up for grabs.
The draft later this month will further muddy the waters, but as of right now, here are the position free-for-alls to watch when football resumes come the hazy, hot and humid days of July and August.
