The Patriots used their first exhibition outing on Thursday night to evaluate the new faces on their roster with most of their starters watching from the sideline after being given the night off. After struggling to find productive contributors via the draft in recent years, the top two picks of the Patriots' 2022 rookie class seem poised to end that streak. Left guard Cole Strange and receiver Tyquan Thornton had solid debuts during New England’s 23-21 loss to the New York Giants, a positive sign for an offense that is still evolving after former offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels’ offseason departure.

New England Patriots running back James White has announced his retirement after eight seasons. The 30-year-old White spent his entire career with the Patriots and won three Super Bowls. He's best remembered for scoring the game-winning touchdown in New England's historic comeback win over Atlanta in Super Bowl 51. White set Super Bowl records for points scored in a game with 20 and receptions with 14 as the Patriots rallied from a 28-3 deficit to win 34-28 in overtime on Feb. 5, 2017. It was the largest comeback in Super Bowl history. White was a reliable receiver out of the backfield. His 2021 season was cut short by a dislocated hip.
