Patriots To Sign Jared Veldheer To One-Year Contract 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue May 7, 2019 7:25 pm

The New England Patriots will sign Jared Veldheer to a one-year contract.

It is expected to come after Tuesday\'s compensatory pick deadline, which means the team will be able to sign a player without it affecting the compensatory pick formula (as the Patriots are projected to receive two third-round picks and two sixth-round picks).

Veldheer provides veteran insurance behind 2018 first-round draft pick Isaiah Wynn (who is coming off an Achilles tear) and Yodny Cajuste (who is coming off a calf injury). The Patriots lost two offensive tackles in free agency -- starter Trent Brown (Oakland) and backup LaAdrian Waddle (Buffalo).
