PFT Live: Patriots talk with Tom Curran, Broncos talk with Vic Lombardi

Malcolm Butler AP

The Patriots don’t want to talk about the past, but that’s OK because there’s plenty of things going on in the present to keep us occupied when Tom Curran of CSN New England stops by PFT Live on Friday.

Curran and Mike Florio will discuss cornerback Malcolm Butler’s return to practice after a little bit of time on the sideline that reportedly resulted from a late arrival to one of the team’s voluntary workouts and the team’s decision to add Matt Flynn to the quarterback mix while they wait to find out whether Tom Brady’s suspension will be reduced on appeal.

Florio will welcome Vic Lombardi of CBS4 in Denver to the show as well to talk about the latest from Broncos camp. They’ll talk Peyton Manning, Demaryius Thomas’s chances of a contract and preview next week’s minicamp during the visit.

We also want to hear what PFT Planet thinks. Email questions at any time via the O’Reilly Auto Parts Ask the Pros inbox or get in touch on Twitter at @ProFootballTalk to let us know what’s on your mind.

It all gets started at noon ET and you can listen to all three hours live via the various NBC Sports Radio affiliates, through the links at PFT, or with the NBC Sports Radio app. You can also watch a simulcast of the first hour of the show by clicking right here.
