FOXBORO, Mass. (WPRI) — Just a few months ago, Ed Lee was catching passes in a Keaney blue jersey.

Now, the University of Rhode Island alum is looking to make a good impression at the Patriots’ mandatory minicamp. He signed with the team earlier this month.

“Initially, when I got the call, it didn’t really hit me at first,” Lee recalled, “but once I got in the locker room, the team meeting with coach Bill, it was like, ‘Man … I’m here.’”

Lee hails from Washington, D.C., but he grew up a Patriots fan.

“Just started liking them and liked them ever since, so it’s a dream come true to even be here,” he said. “There’s 32 teams and the one team I get an opportunity with is my favorite team, so like I said, definitely a dream come true and excited to be here.”

Lee made a couple big catches at practice on Monday, and offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien was heard commending his route-running.
