This is Wes Langley Weekly RoundTable for CLNSRadio.com for The Group New England Patriots Nation.
This week I wanted to talk about the signing of veteran DT Terrance Knighton and I'm also will be talking about the depth of the TE position for the Patriots next season.
What are your thoughts on signing of Veteran DT Terrance Knighton?
Wes- I think with the addition of DT Terrance Knighton the Patriots not only did this move to add depth on the defensive line they are also getting a player who will be stopping the run and will demand a double team, he will also add a little interior pass rush. I really love the rotation of Terrance Knighton, Dominique Easley, Malcolm Brown, Alan Branch, Chris Jones, and Joe Vellano this could be a strength for The Patriots in 2016-2017 season.
With the additions of Tight End's Martellus Bennett and Clay Harbor, and with 1st Team All Pro Rob Gronkowski, Michael Williams, and 2015 6th Round pick AJ Derby what is your expectations for the TE position next season?
Wes- my expectations is there is no limit for what we can do Rob Gronkowski is gonna be a beast having another All Pro year and being the best TE in football and I also expect Martellus Bennett to have a huge year its gonna be a matchup nightmare for every defense we face using the 2 Tight Ends sets, the potential of these two could have is easily having the best passing game in the NFL a a back to the Super Bowl.
We also made a move to get Clay Harbor which is a big time addition he adds depth, has great blocking abilities, and is a threat to also catch the football when he will be used. Any Patriots fan should be excited about this group of guys playing Tight End.
In conclusion of this weeks roundtable I talked about the additions of Terrance Knighton, Martellus Bennett, and Clay Harbor all of these guys will make big contributions to the team I have to admit we are the favorites to win the Super Bowl and we should be optimistic going into the NFL Draft and Preseason.
