The first day, during Communicating Your Garden, I taught how to capture a garden’s beauty through journaling, photography, and sketching.
The Patriots may have a hard time finding room for him on the roster with so many other receivers, but his special teams ability could help him make a case as an insurance policy on second year receiver Josh Boyce. His 6 foot, 188 pound frame isn’t as physically imposing as some might like from a boundary threat, but he has the ability to work in space and savvy route running to sell his routes and still get into his break.
