It's hard to write or think about football as the unprecedented events unfold in Boston on Friday. The New England Patriots recognize as much.
"Due to the developing events of today, the Patriots have respectfully postponed their pre-draft press conference that was scheduled at Gillette Stadium today and will now hold the press conference on Monday, April 22 at 12:00 p.m," the team said in a statement.
The city of Boston is on lockdown Friday morning as authorities attempt to apprehend the second suspect in Monday's Boston Marathon bombings. Our thoughts are with everyone in Boston on this Friday. Be safe.
