I'll update things in the OP:

June 12:

Quote:
Belichick says he installs a "significant" portion of the system during this run of offseason workouts, about more than half.


Quote:
Belichick on Adrian Wilson: "I think he's very well respected."


Quote:
Tebow question: Belichick says "everybody is ... in the same boat." Tebow's might be an ark.


Quote:
"I don't think evaluating players after a couple plays is a real good practice." BB on Tebow's first day.


More updates:

Quote:
today's practice over...Aaron Hernandez not spotted; had been working with rehab group & catching some passes last couple of weeks


Quote:
General thought on WR group: It is Danny Amendola and then a noticeable drop-off.


Quote:
Pats practice wraps up with Tebow working at QB in opportunity time.


Quote:
Rookie free-agent WR Kenbrell Thompkins continues to get reps alongside Amendola and Jenkins in top group.


Quote:
Hernandez, Gronk and Edelman among those not on field for practice.


Quote:
TE Daniel Fells seems to show up a bit more than the norm. Somewhat of a forgotten man but could still help.


Quote:
Similar to Tuesday, Tim Tebow works exclusively at QB. Leads "opportunity" team at end of practice.


Quote:
The "opportunity" portion of practice is for rookies and lesser-experienced players.


Quote:
Offense looked crisp today. Brady again displayed nice chemistry with Amendola.


Quote:
CBs Kyle Arrington, Aqib Talib & Ras-I Dowling with pass breakups. Defense has looked to be ahead of offense. Practice ends with INT.


Quote:
QB stats in 11-on-11s today: Brady (11-19, INT), Mallett (10-14), Tebow (6-9). Tebow's only reps again were in opportunity time.


Quote:
Brady's pick was a deflection on the last play of practice, by the way.


June 11:



Quote:
Scene-setter: CNN, ESPN and many of the local television stations are set up in Gillette Stadium parking lot, with live reports.


http://twitter.com/MikeReiss/statuses/344446773428879360

Quote:
Have seen Trey Wingo + Tim Hasselbeck, Fox, Yahoo, USA Today, NY Post and NY Daily News here today, plus a lot of extra local people


http://twitter.com/BenVolin/statuses/344460849831890944

Quote:
Ok ... The New York Post has sent TWO reporters to cover Tebow's first day in Foxboro. #ComprehensiveCoverage


http://twitter.com/AlbertBreer/statuses/344464368630644737

Quote:
Belichick has the #Patriots in numberless jerseys for camp. May keep Tebow's number under wraps... And delay jersey sales.


http://twitter.com/RapSheet/statuses/344446428283822083

Quote:
Belichick noticed the millions of media here for his news conference and instantly laughed.


http://twitter.com/jeffphowe/statuses/344465160477474816

Quote:
Belichick on Tebow: "Anything we do we feel is in the best interest of the team."


http://twitter.com/jeffphowe/statuses/344465466401632256

Quote:
"Best interests of the team -- Tim's a smart player who works hard." So, that's what we expected.


http://twitter.com/SC_DougFarrar/statuses/344465610362736641

***Update***
Quote:
Practice over. Tebow got zero work in team drills until very end, when he completed 4 of 7 passes with the threes


http://twitter.com/BenVolin/statuses/344499794322001920

More updates - June 11:
Quote:
LB Brandon Spikes, who didn't attend voluntary OTAs, is right back into the mix. High-5s from teammates.


http://twitter.com/MikeReiss/statuses/344499619734122497

Quote:
CB Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder) works with rehab group. Last week's injury doesn't appear to be overly serious.


http://twitter.com/MikeReiss/statuses/344499726495911936

Quote:
At WR, the group was thinned. Rookie free-agent Kenbrell Thompkins gets top reps. A name to keep an eye on.


http://twitter.com/MikeReiss/statuses/344499832838307840

Quote:
Bill Belichick confirms that all Patriots players have reported for mandatory minicamp.


http://twitter.com/MikeReiss/statuses/344467426487959552

Quote:
Belichick injury update on Dennard, who was carted off the field during OTA's last week: "He'll do what he can do."


http://twitter.com/Mary_Paoletti/statuses/344466728987795459

Quote:
Day 1 #Patriots mini-camp: Gronkowski, Edelman, and N. McDonald not spotted.


http://twitter.com/Mary_Paoletti/statuses/344500313564266498

Quote:
Also interesting that Spikes, who skipped OTAs, got zero work in team drills as well


http://twitter.com/BenVolin/statuses/344500393360908289

Quote:
Sudfeld and KenBrell Thompkins had good days on offense. Overall, good day for offense--sharp.


http://twitter.com/cpriceNFL/statuses/344502205069545473

Quote:
Spikes asked if he has a contract issue. "Now why would you ask that? No comment."




***Update***
Quote:
Big practice for Adrian Wilson. He intercepted a pass on a trick play and dove to break up a Ryan Mallett pass on the goal line.


Quote:
As expected, Arrington stepped up for Dennard, who was present but not participating in team drills. Dowling got more work, too.


Quote:
Spikes did some conditioning work in the bubble and was held out of team drills until the final run of 11-on-11s of the session.


Quote:
Brady was ecstatic (no hyperbole) with a route adjustment Amendola made that led to a quick completion


Quote:
Brady completed 10-of13 passes in 11-on-11s. Mallett was 4-of-9. Tebow was 4-of-7 in opportunity time.


Quote:
Lavelle Hawkins made some nice catches today. He stuck out more than most receivers until a false start in red-zone drills (penalty lap).


Quote:
Julian Edelman has shed his walking boot and has been catching passes on the Gillette game field for the last 15 minutes.

This is hysterical, I'm watching this press now, Belichick has repeated himself at least 5 times already, "He's a smart player, he works hard." and "Anything we do is for the best interest of the team."

Quote:
Belichick, gold: "I've already answered that question twice." Clearly already annoyed with Tebow questions. Cracked a smile!


http://twitter.com/TheBigLead/statuses/344466178879664128

Quote:
Belichick already going with "I've answered the question twice" on Tebow & position. Midseason form. "Look, we got a team full of players"


http://twitter.com/RapSheet/statuses/344466203412135937

Quote:
On media presence here, Belichick says, "Hopefully there will be more for the games on Sunday."


http://twitter.com/jeffphowe/statuses/344466231623032834

Quote:
Bill Belichick rocking the "I think I've already talked enough about him." Then, "anything else?" Should've called that one. Slipping.

Finally something else:

Sounds like this will be a press conference actually worth watching Laughing

But yeah, we're getting exactly what we thought we'd get in reference to Tebow. Stock answers, then moving along.

The Tebow questions just did not stop coming... Belichick just shut it down in the end Laughing

Quote:
Please see my Monday afternoon tweet: The Museum of Broadcasting has cleared a wing for this Belichick press conference. Time capsule stuff.

I think this time BB has bitten off more than he can chew. Confused

Can we please have a single thread where Tebow is discussed and have that be the only place where Tebow discussions take place. I'm pretty sure most of the forum including myself has zero interest in reading about him, and want to focus on the players who are actually interesting. A Tebow specific thread would be much appreciated so the rest of the threads don't lose their focus.

Something we never thought we'll see:

Might be a good idea.

if Brady can't help improve his throwing motion, nobody can.

Again, my stance on the guy is that he will only be roster-worthy in September if he can contribute as an H-back and on special teams. Improving his throwing motion alone isn't even enough to justify his lack of accuracy and apparent IQ on the field.
