FOXBOROUGH — As Curtis Martin was on his way to Gillette Stadium on Sunday, he looked out for the End Zone Motel. It was where he lived for a year during his time with the Patriots, a time that seems long ago based on the changes that have come to the stadium and the area since then. The motel, he was told, remains — but under a different name.
Martin isn’t surprised by the changes. He thought, based on knowing team owner Robert Kraft, that they might be in store for the franchise, eventually.
