The New England Patriots may try to target another free agent. This time the team has been linked with a veteran player and many would agree that he is the perfect addition for the team.
The Houston Texans granted Kenny Stills his release on Friday. The 28-year-old spent the last season and most of this season with Houston. Stills begun his professional career with the New Orleans Saints in 2013. He joined the Miami Dolphins for four seasons from 2015-18.
Patriots may not be a target for the free agent
Stills wanted to leave the team in order to join a playoff team. Houston is out of the playoff picture with a 4-7 record. However, the team is on a two-game win streak after beating head coach Bill Belichick and the Patriots in Week 11. They also shut down the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving.
The free agent will look for opportunities to finish his career somewhere else. He has yet to find a good home in the NFL. Winning a Super Bowl is a priority for the player and he would love to join great teams.
Patriots may shown interest in Stills, but he may not be interested in signing with the team at this point.
Mark Daniels from Providence Journal said “Stills has had some nice game against the Patriots – 8 catches for 135 yards in 2018.” If Stills wants to win the title, New England may not be an option for him. That’s what Daniels said.
Houston defeated New England and the offense had great game. Stills has played with quarterback Deshaun Watson and the latter had great success against the Pats.
The Green Bay Packers may be an option for Stills. The team will play against the Chicago Bears this weekend, and they are in the first place in the NFC North with a 7-3 record. Not bad, right? This win would give the Packers a chance to lock up the division.
New England has so much to do right now, and players have to elevate their game in order to win the upcoming games. The team will have to win the next six games to make the playoffs. Is that even possible?
