The New England Patriots have returned to work, and they couldn't be happier. That's the way life goes when you play professional football.
The Pats returned to Gillette Stadium on Tuesday, one day after the lockout was lifted as they readied for the opening of camp with their conditioning test on Wednesday and the start of practices on Thursday.
Players like Patrick Chung and Wes Welker spoke with the media and expressed excitement to be returning to work. Chung even took things to the extreme, admitting that he had missed not only the fans, but the media as well.
