    The Patriots' grounds team is getting their own new team member who can dash across an NFL field with the best of them — a rescue dog named Boyd.

    The 5½-year-old's job is to chase geese to keep the team's field in pristine shape, according to a post on the Gillette Stadium Twitter account. 

    Boyd met members of the media ahead of the season-opener Sunday, including our own Susan Tran, who shared this picture of the handsome, black-flecked dog gazing into the sunlight.

    One more tidbit from the stadium's account, following a common Twitter practice: Boyd gets a 12/10 rating as "the GOAT field crew member."
