Patriots open camp, try to ignore 'Deflategate' noise

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Fans drove to Gillette Stadium past a booth selling "Free Tom Brady" T-shirts.

Then, when they arrived for the New England Patriots' first training camp practice on Thursday, they let the star quarterback know how they felt.

Brady took the field to a boisterous cheer from the more than 10,000 fans who sat in a sweltering sun to see the Super Bowl champions open the defense of their title.

Team owner Robert Kraft, who lashed out at the NFL a day earlier for upholding Brady's suspension, also got loud applause when he came out on the field.
