It has been a trying 2020 offseason for the Patriots. The team is dealing with a slew of opting _out issues. Coved 19 is jeopardizing the upcoming season. Leading the way on the opt _out lists are Dont’a Hightower, Marcus Cannon, Brandon Bolden, Patrick Chung, and Danny Vitale. Hightower is the quarterback of the defense. If anymore opt_ out head coach Bill Belichick will have a problem on his hands. In this post, we will weigh in on the Patriots opt_out issues.
Weighing In On The Patriots Team Opting Out Issues
Conspiracy Theorist Experts Taking Over Events like opting_out promote conspiracy theories. Especially when they surround the Patriots. Bill Belichick is not the most popular person. With, Tom Brading signing with Tampa Bay this only sparks conspiracy The Patriots have been a victim of Spygate and Deflategate. Opting_out from playing only makes it worse. With training camp underway, the next couple of weeks should be interesting. This makes suitable conversation for the local talk shows and podcasts.
Key Players Opting Out The Patriots defense will be seriously a Dante Hightower has been the leader for several years. Patrick Chung is a valuable cog in the defensive backfield. Without either, the Patriots will have to trade or sign an available free agent. Starting a rookie means growing pains and defeats.
The Team Awarded Extra Cap Space Before training camp, the club was awarded extra cap space. The team came to terms on the Antonio Brown contract, and Aron Hernandez estate.
Instead of being under 1,000,000 dollars, the club has an additional 7.5 million dollars in cap space. Some names to keep an eye on are James Harrison defensive tackle and edge rusher, Jedaveon Clowney. Clowney would provide leadership left by Hightower. I personally like defensive tackle, James Harrison. Only 31 years old he’s a versatile run stopper. He has recently played for the Jets and Lions.
Looking Ahead Depending on the pandemic the NFL season could be at stake. Players are opting_out to protect their families. The Patriots have been one of the hardest _hit teams. With the loss of Tom Brady and others, it could be a long season for Patriots fans.
