The New England Patriots won six games in the regular season. They beat the New York Jets and used the opportunity to get one of their players. According to reports, the Patriots signed a veteran offensive lineman of the Jets practice unit. Field Yates from ESPN was among the first to confirm Connor McDermott’s signing.
McDermott, 30, will add depth to the Patriots position. Bill Belichick could use this depth in the game against the Minnesota Vikings.
It’s interesting to note that the Patriots selected McDermott in 2017. They used the 211th overall pick in the sixth round of the draft. He has the perfect size and yes, he could be of really great help for the Patriots.
The Jets elevated McDermott to their practice unit right on time for the games against New England. He played 35 games as a Jets player and the team gave him a chance to start six games. McDermott caught one touchdown pass and Belichick would sure love to see more from him.
McDermott is having a good season. He played 76 snaps on offense and 29 on special teams. Belichick had a few good reasons to sign him and NFL experts approve this move.
The Patriots sign Jets veteran to handle depth issues
Veteran center David Andrews suffered a thing injury and fans are worried about his health condition. Davis joined his teammates for practice on Tuesday and there’s no room for panic at this point. The Patriots have yet to provide an update on his condition, but Andrews will probably suit up for the upcoming game.
Isaiah Wynn treats his foot injury. He didn’t practice with the team and his future with the Patriots may be hanging in the air. Marcus Cannon is on injured reserve and J.J. Taylor is no longer part of the team. In other words, McDermott could step in and fill the big void on the roster.
New England faced several challenges this season and players have just entered the most important portion of the season. They have to win more games and beat their rivals.
