The Patriots are reportedly adding a pair of offensive-lineman to their already depth-filled line, Alex Redmond, and James Ferentz.
Redmond, the now ex-Bengal, is coming according to an ESPN report. James Ferentz, who has spent he past three seasons with New England, is coming back per the Boston Globe.
Redmond, 31, has appeared in 32 games, while starting 24 of them. The former Bengal played in, and started 15 games in 2018. But the lineman played in just three games in 2019, and just nine in 2020 after making it onto the Bengals as an undrafted free agent in 2016.
Ferentz, 26, has played in 24 games across the past three seasons with New England. He’s had four starts, appearing in 15 games in 2019, but just seven in 2020. He was coached by his dad at Iowa, who was an assistant to Belichick with the Browns.
The Patriots now have plenty of competition on the o-line. Marcus Martin, Najee Toran, sixth round pick out of Colorado William Sherman, as well as the two new signees will have to battle for a roster spot in training camp.
