FOXBOROUGH - Matt Grzelcyk is a professional athlete in one of the most passionate sports cities in the world. But that doesn't mean he can't still be a fan, too.

The Charlestown native grew up rooting for the Patriots and was able to cross one thing off his bucket list on Tuesday afternoon when he joined teammates Charlie McAvoy, Ryan Donato, and Chris Wagner for a visit to New England's final official training camp practice of the summer. The quartet took in the session from the VIP bleachers before heading down to the field following practice to meet with Patriots owner Robert Kraft, head coach Bill Belichick, and several players, including Rob Gronkowski and Patrick Chung.
