New Haven's Osiecki invited to Patriots' camp

This comes from staffer Henry Chisholm

University of New Haven All-American quarterback Ryan Osiecki said he was invited to the New England Patriots rookie mini camp and will have a chance to play for a contract.
“It’s an introduction to the playbook and there are 12 hour days, a lot of on the field stuff and a lot of meeting room stuff,” Osiecki said.
The quarterback, who passed for 1,550 yards and 16 touchdowns last season, said he thinks he might be the only quarterback who was invited. He said he will find out in the coming days.
“They didn’t draft any and I checked, they didn’t sign any either,” he said. “As far as my odds go, I’m the only one going, unless they invite other quarterbacks.”
Osiecki joins defensive lineman Raheem Stanley and wide receiver Jason Thompson, who will both attend mini camps.
Stanley was invited to the Kansas City Chiefs camp and Thompson agreed to a three-year contract with the Washington Redskins, according to their agent Tom Kline.
“I’m still in shock a little bit,” Thompson said. “It’s a dream. It’s a dream come true.”
Meanwhile, Stanley said he is proud of his fellow Chargers and looking forward to mini camp.
“I can’t even put into words how proud I am,” he said. “Jason is one of the greatest players I’ve ever seen and Ryan, his arm is ridiculous. I’m happy for both of them to get a chance to live their dreams.”
