Report: New England Patriots Lose Receiver Isaiah Ford

NFL experts made a lot of predictions regarding the New England Patriots right before the 2020 trade deadline in November. Head coach Bill Belichick had to decide whether his team would be a buyer or seller. It looks like the Patriots became buyers. New England kept superstar Stephon Gilmore and Joe Thuney on the roster, and brought additional help from other teams. The Patriots sent a conditional sixth-round selection in the 2020 draft to the Miami Dolphins to get the wideout and now they lose Isaiah Ford. A month after getting Ford, the team decided to cut him again. Let’s not forget that Ford didn’t appear in a single game for Belichick’s team.

Patriots lose Isaiah Ford to Miami

New England parted ways with the 24-year-old this weekend. He was exposed to the waiver wire despite hoping to sign him again.

“We’ll see how it goes going forward. Hopefully we can continue to work with him,” coach Bill Belichick said during a media conference call on Monday.

It looks like the Patriots won’t get the chance at this point. Field Yates of ESPN reported that Ford will probably resign with the Dolphins’ practice unit. New England has to seal the deal right now. they still have to send a draft selection to the Dolphins as coach Belichick confirmed earlier this week.

Ford was released right after the promotion of veteran wideout Donte Moncrief to the active roster. The former third-round pick got the No.4 role right behind Jakobi Meyers, Damiere Byrd, and N’Kea; Harry. He was also a kickoff returner for the team. The team’s trade addition is now expendable.

Ford is gone right now, and New England has to rely on the four pass catchers. Gunner Olszewski is also part of the crew. Kristian Wilkerson and Isaiah Zuber are also part of the group. Veteran wideout Julian Edelman is on the COVID-19/reserve list after the Patriots added him to the list. Edelman was recovering from his knee procedure, and his covid episode came like a surprise to many fans. Was he in close contact with an infected person? Maybe he tested positive for the virus. For now, we can’t say more about his condition.
