More than any other NFL team, training camp could not arrive soon enough for the New England Patriots.

For a no-nonsense organization that prides itself on "ignoring the noise," hearing about murder charges, forearm surgeries and third-string quarterbacks throughout the offseason was surely not what head coach Bill Belichick had in mind.
