BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Patriots had a great mini-camp and all went well at their eight spring practices, so Bill Belichick canceled the final two voluntary organized team activities this week.
With a little free time, new receiver Jordan Matthews joined teammates Malcolm Mitchell, Nicholas Grigsby, and Jason King yesterday in Boston's South End to donate iPads on behalf of the Pats' charitable foundation. They also met with kids at an afterschool program.
Matthews spoke with the media, and told ESPN New England's offseason camps were as advertised.
"You come in having expectations, things you've heard from other people," he said. "And I talked to people, you know, I talked to Danny--I called Danny Amendola personally. Just talked to him about the type of environment and the type of opportunity that coming here was. He gave me some good tidbits, we had a great talk. It's everything I expected it to be. I'm having fun!"
Matthews spent the first three years of his career with the Eagles, then last season in Buffalo. He totaled career-lows with 25 catches, 282 yards, and one touchdown in just 10 games.
Pats players won't take the field again until next month for the start of training camp.
