Cornerback Duke Dawson showed a good grasp of life as a member of the Patriots before he even signed a contract with the team.

Dawson spoke to the media on Tuesday and was asked about his early experiences with the team.

“It’s great. Like I said, I just come in every day — open ears, closed mouth — to learn,” Dawson said, via comments distributed by the team.

The “open ears, closed mouth” part should suit coach Bill Belichick just fine and Dawson now has the next four years to continue showing he gets the Patriot way. Mike Reiss of reports that Dawson has signed his rookie deal.

New England made Dawson the 56th overall pick when they selected him in the second round last month. He played primarily in the slot at Florida last season and could challenge for playing time there early in his time with the Patriots if the learning experience continues to go well.

  1. Another brilliant pick by the genius… Hopefully he can be benched someday during the biggest game of the year for like a 3rd round compensatory 3rd round pick…

  2. yep, that coach is an idiot. just ask all the boston and national sports media experts, or all the pizza slurping fan experts that know more about picking and coaching players. he may have taken 11 teams to super bowls and come home with 7 rings, but you know more. have another bag of donuts, you earned it.

  3. The Pats got the best COACH & QB in the league…. now it’s getting key players back that were lost to them last year & have reloaded in areas of need that they lost in FA…..
    I’m excited to see just how good this TEAM can really be!!
    welcome to the Pats DD!!
    Go Pats!!!
