Bill Belichick always knows how to tell us how the roster turnover is the ultimate reality of the NFL team building. Each of the squads add and lose players during the offseason. Some players left New England this winter and summer, but the team managed to add a bunch of awesome players who are likely to get big roles. The Super Bowl is a thing, and they are more than ready for it.
The opening of the training camp is scheduled on July 26th, and we have nine newcomers you should look at this summer and fall.
Trent Brown is a nice replacement for Nate Solder, and will definitely fill the void at the left tackle. The 49ers coach
Kyle Shanahan once said that Brown is a high-end pass protector. This means that the addition of Brown is actually the first step towards a solid elite offense.
Danny Shelton didn’t gain much success in Cleveland, but has bright future in Foxborough.
Sony Michel can be used as both runner and receiver. He was a playmaker at Georgia, and may have the same role as a rookie in the Pats team.
Adrian Clayborn has the ability to bring instant stability to the defensive end position. He’s a professional edge player, and may help Trey Flowers in the game.
Jordan Matthews will have a key role despite Julian Edelman’s suspension. He will have to build a quick and productive rapport with quarterback Tom Brady.
Isaiah Wynn will enter the battle for the left tackle spot. He may also get a job on the inside. Wynn was an All-SEC offensive lineman.
Jason McCourty is a veteran cornerback and he should stand for the starting job opposite Stephon Gilmore.
Cordarrelle Patterson is one of the best kickoff returners in the NFL history. He may be an impact returner and gadget guy on McDaniels’ offense.
JC Jackson is an undrafted rookie out of Maryland. How will he fit in the game?
Let’s wait and find out.
