FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — As the summer heats up, so will the New England Patriots' training camp battles.
A look at the roster reveals a handful of positions where the team will have to make some tough decisions over the next few months, and that goes for both the starting spots and the deeper battles. Some of these battles will be determined strictly based on talent, while others could be determined by scheme fit.
