Once again this season, B-98.5, is your home in central Maine for New England Patriots football. It all begins this Thursday with a preseason game at Washington. Experts are expecting another strong season this year.

Tom Brady who just celebrated his 37th birthday will be happy to have Rob Gronkowski back this season, hopefully a full, healthy season! Other than Gronk, Edelman and Amendola, Tom Brady will have a young receiving core, including Derrick Johnson from the University of Maine.

It looks like the defense will be the strength of the team. Vince Wilfolk is returning from an injury. The secondary looks vastly improved with the additions of Derrelle Revis and Brandon Browner. Returning players Jared Mayo, Rob Ninkovich will also look for another strong season.

So are you excited for some football?
