In the weeks leading up to training on the pitch as early as possible and six spots on New England’s now-vacant 90-man roster, the Patriots can still add a still rookie group. Undraft They can also fill out their list by bringing in a few more experienced free agents.
Many famous players have yet to find a new home since the NFL league year opened in mid-March. And with the signing of free agents, it will no longer count towards the team’s payout formula on Monday afternoon.Many are likely to sign in the coming days and weeks.
Which ones might interest New England? The Patriots had no need for a clear roster. But they will benefit from another proven addition to the rear corner and / or wide receiver.
For the former, re-signing Jason McCourty is still a possibility. He is one of the few 2020 Patriots free agents to have yet to make a new deal and Pats clearly has no substitute for him at the third outside corner behind Stephon Gilmore and JC Jackson. McCourty̵7;s twin brother Devin has a year left on his Patriots contract.
External options include Richard Sherman, Bashaud Breeland, Steven Nelson, Casey Hayward, Josh Norman, Darqueze Dennard and Gareon Conley.
For the broader available, the list includes 2020 Patriot Damiere Byrd, Golden Tate, Larry Fitzgerald, Kenny Stills, Alshon Jeffery, Dede Westbrook and Danny Amendola (although we suspect Amendola will be welcomed after Super Week comments. His Bowl)
Free agents who are not signed for other positions include:
The offensive fight: Alejandro Villanueva, Charles Leno, Russell Okung, Rick Wagner, Mitchell Schwartz, Eric Fisher, Dennis Kelly, Bobby Massie, Cameron Fleming, Jermaine Eluemunor.
