The Patriots need depth at offensive tackle.

"The New England Patriots visited with former Oakland Raiders Authentic Byron Cowart Jersey , Arizona Cardinals, and Denver Broncos offensive tackle Jared Veldheer, per ESPN’s Field Yates, and I think he would be the perfect signing.The 6’8, 320-pound Veldheer was a third round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Raiders and quickly became the team’s starting left tackle. He held that job for all four years, including a 2013 season where he was limited with a triceps injury. He signed a 5-year deal with the Cardinals in free agency and started for four years White Drew Bledsoe Jerseys , suffering a season-ending triceps injury in 2016 and an ankle injury in 2017. The Cardinals moved Veldheer to right tackle for the 2017 season, where he struggled greatly. Arizona traded Veldheer to the Broncos for the 2018 season, where he continued to play right tackle and struggled; in his defense, he suffered a knee injury early in the year that he played through.When healthy and at left tackle, Veldheer is a solid, if not pretty good Drew Bledsoe Jerseys 2019 , offensive tackle. He has the prototypical size that the Patriots’ like at left tackle- similar length to Nate Solder and Trent Brown- and he’ll be affordable. their respective injuries. And if Veldheer wins the job outright, well, no one should complain about signing a starter as a free agent in May. Lombardi is a familiar name in the Northeast. Not only did the New England Patriots just win their sixth trophy named after legendary former Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi, they also once employed a man who shares the same last name: Mike Lombardi, a long-time acquaintance of head coach Bill Belichick, worked with the club as an assistant to the coaching staff during the 2014 and 2015 seasons.Now White Steve Grogan Jerseys , it looks as if Lombardi will make a return on the Patriots’ staff — in name, at least: according to ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss, the Patriots are expected to add his son Mick Lombardi to their coaching staff in some capacity. The younger Lombardi is no stranger when it comes to working with the team: he got his first NFL job with the Patriots and served as a scouting and later coaching assistant in 2011 and 2012.The following year, Lombardi left New England to join the San Francisco 49ers. He spent the next four years with the club in numerous roles before moving back to the East Coast in 2017 when he was hired by the New York Jets as an offensive assistant and assistant quarterbacks coach. Now, it seems as if he will return to the organization that gave him his start in the league in a yet to be reported role.Given Lombardi’s history, however Steve Grogan Jerseys 2019 , one can assume that he will fill one of the Patriots’ two coaching vacancies on offense: both wide receivers coach Chad O’Shea and assistant quarterbacks coach Jerry Schupliski left the club last week to join Brian Flores’ staff with the Miami Dolphins. And while 2018 coaching assistant Atif Austin appears to be a prime candidate to fill one of the open spots (possible O’Shea’s), Lombardi might be given the other.
