  Patriots | Kellen Mond in contact with OC    Mon Apr 12, 02:55 PM

Texas A&M QB Kellen Mond said he has been in contact with New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels during the pre-draft process, according to The Boston Globe's Jim McBride.

Footballguys view: Mond is a player who teams will be considering in the mid rounds of the 2021 NFL draft. He's an athletic player who can attack a defense with his legs. As a passer, Mond needs work as his anticipation is in need of improvement. Look at him as a developmental prospect in the NFL.

  Patriots | NE to attend Justin Fields' workout    Mon Apr 12, 01:36 PM

Ohio State QB Justin Fields' second Pro Day will be attended by representatives from the New England Patriots, according to SI.com's Albert Breer. Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels likely will be one of the representatives for the Patriots at the workout.

Footballguys view: The Patriots should be in the market for a quarterback in the 2021 NFL draft. Fields could fall a bit, but the Patriots would have to move in front of a team like the Broncos at no.9 overall if they really want him. He reminds some in the scouting community of Dak Prescott and could be a franchise quarterback in the NFL.

  Patriots | Doubt surrounds Julian Edelman     Thu Apr 8, 01:00 PM

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) had surgery last fall to alleviate knee swelling and is planning on playing in 2021, but a source said Thursday, April 8, that Edelman's knee issue is chronic, and is believes it's 'doubtful' that Edelman will be able to play an entire season.

Footballguys view: Let's watch this situation as the regular season draws near. Edelman is going to have to be managed in terms of what he does in the offseason and in practice during the week. Fantasy GMs can find better flex plays than an aging Edelman.

  Patriots | Bill Belichick's draft choices questioned    Tue Apr 6, 10:02 AM

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick ignored his scouts' input before taking WR N'Keal Harry in 2019, according to sources. His scouts preferred WRs A.J. Brown and Deebo Samuel, but Belichick based his opinion on his own experience with Harry and the opinion of his college coach, Todd Graham, who is close to Belichick. Belichick has become more open to his scouts' input since then.

Footballguys view: Harry obviously was overdrafted and has never played up to his first-round draft status. Belichick has the championships and historical knowledge of the game, so his draft busts are not as recognizable as other executives out there. Without QB Tom Brady, Belichick has a lot to prove.

  Patriots | Rex Burkhead on the mend    Fri Apr 2, 09:15 PM

Free-agent RB Rex Burkhead (Patriots) has begun sprinting and said he is 'progressing everyday' from knee surgery that he underwent in December.

Footballguys view: There's no telling when Burkhead is going to get signed by a team. With James White returning to the Patriots it seems unlikely Burkhead would be back in New England. He may have to wait until training camp or perhaps even the start of the regular season before finding a new team.

  Patriots | Robert Kraft wants QB addressed    Wed Mar 31, 06:13 PM

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft said about the team's 2021 quarterback Wednesday, March 31, 'one way or another, we have to get that position solidified.' Cam Newton and Jarrett Stidham are currently the top QBs on the Patriots' depth chart.

Footballguys view: The Patriots need to find a quarterback of the future. Newton is there to start for this season but after that things are wide open. If a player like Mac Jones (Alabama) fell to them in the first round then that would make a lot of sense. We'll see when they address the position, but it sounds like they will at some point in the 2021 NFL draft.

  Patriots | NE not pursuing Jimmy Garoppolo    Sun Mar 28, 01:59 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is not a trade target for the New England Patriots at this point, according to sources.

Footballguys view: With the 49ers making a blockbuster move to get up to no.3 overall in the 2021 NFL draft (for a quarterback), many felt the team would be moving on from Garoppolo. A team most interested could be the Patriots, but that doesn't seem to be the case. We expect the 49ers to draft a rookie who could sit for a year behind Garoppolo...or until he gets hurt again.

  Patriots | Lawrence Guy terms    Fri Mar 26, 08:11 AM

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots DT Lawrence Guy received a four-year, $11.5 million deal.

Footballguys view: Guy is a dirty work player on the interior defensive line who consistently outproduces his pay. He'll help give the Patriots a deep defensive line rotation.

  Patriots | James White back to Pats    Wed Mar 24, 12:31 PM

Updating an earlier report, free-agent RB James White (Patriots) signed a one-year, $2.5 million fully guaranteed deal with the New England Patriots Wednesday, March 24.

Footballguys view: Many thought White would be reunited with QB Tom Brady and sign with the Buccaneers. That didn't happen, so he sticks with the Patriots in a well-defined role. White has some deep flex appeal for Fantasy GMs in deeper leagues.

Free-agent TE Hunter Henry (Chargers) agreed to a three-year, $37.5 million deal with the New England Patriots Tuesday, March 16. The deal includes $25 million guaranteed.

Footballguys view: The Patriots have gone out of their way to improve the tight end position. On Monday, they secured the services of Jonnu Smith in free agency. Now, Henry joins the fray. This is bad news for Devin Asiasi as the second-year pro was seen as a future pass-catching tight end.

Las Vegas Raiders impending free-agent WR Nelson Agholor plans to sign a two-year contract with the New England Patriots worth $26 million, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Agholor did a good job getting his career back on track with the Raiders last year. The Patriots lack pass-catching weapons, so Agholor steps into a situation where he's needed. The team runs the ball early and often, so that may limit Agholor's potential but he's got some flex appeal for Fantasy GMs in 2021.

Tennessee Titans impending free-agent TE Jonnu Smith plans to sign a four-year contract with the New England Patriots worth $50 million. The deal will include $31.25 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: Smith gets his deal and the Patriots get a pass-catching threat at the tight end position. He should work and be featured to be one of QB Cam Newton's favorite targets in 2021. Devin Asiasi will work as the primary backup as a pass-catching tight end and Dalton Keene will work as a blocker/H-back/do-everything tight end.

  Patriots | New England talking with Jake Funk    Sun Mar 14, 08:08 PM

Maryland RB Jake Funk spent 'extensive' time with the New England Patriots during the Maryland Pro Day, according to Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network.

Footballguys view: Funk is an interesting late-round pick at the running back position. He's got speed but it takes some time for him to build to top speed. Funk has agility and can make cuts at speed without losing momentum. He could stick around in the NFL as a reserve runner and special teams player.
