The New England Patriots had their OTAs and this was the best chance for young talents to show their talent. NFL reporters noticed a few surprising absences. Isaiah Wynn didn’t join his teammates and his absence sparkled an avalanche of reactions. Will head coach Bill Belichick move on from the talented player? According to some reports, several Patriots players returned to OTAs sessions.
Tuesday’s practice offered a different perspective Running back James White, linebacker Anfernee Jennings, and defensive lineman Davon Godchaux missed Tuesday’s practice. However, we have some photos from Wednesday’s session. As you may have noticed, Godchaux and Jennings hit the practice field. White was spotted on the field on Thursday. So, yes, everything is fine with these guys.
Of course, we don’t have more photos from other players attending the session. We don’t have information whether Matthew Judon, Isaiah Wynn, and N’Keal Harry joined the team.
Other Patriots players haven’t returned to OTAs
Wynn’s situation is a bit tricky. He had to use these workouts to secure his spot on the depth chart. It didn’t happen and he missed each and every session. The Patriots moved Trent Brown from right to left and the talented player may stay on this position for a little longer.
Harry’s situation is equally complicated. The wide receiver joined the Patriots as a first-rounder. NFL analysts had high expectations from Harry, but his performance was really disappointing. Harry failed to connect with Tom Brady. He sustained injuries and missed big chunk of the season. The young WR was also a healthy scratch. Bill Belichick elected to use other receivers and even used rookies. Harry requested a trade from the Patriots and he made it publicly. The WR changed his mind and stayed on the team throughout the entire season.
The Patriots traded for DeVante Parker and this trade may bring Harry’s tenure with the team to an end. He may be a talented guy, but he is a bad fit for the team. Let’s see where this goes… Maybe he will leave the team for good.
