Patriots Sign Offensive Lineman From Jets Practice Squad

The New England Patriots finished off a season sweep of the New York Jets with a dramatic, late 10-3 win, and now, they've looked to fill a void on their offensive line by raiding their division rivals practice squad, as today, the Patriots signed veteran Conor McDermott from New York's practice squad. 

McDermott was a sixth round draft pick of the Patriots back in 2017, and has been in the AFC East ever since, spending time with Buffalo and the Jets, and now, following several injuries to the offensive line, he will return to where it all began and provide the Patriots with some solid depth along the line. In his career, McDermott has played in 38 games, and while he's likely never going to be a starter in the NFL, he can play a great depth role for a playoff team in 2022.

The highlight of McDermott's career was when he pulled in a Touchdown grab in 2021 for the Jets, but with an opportunity, he can play a solid role for New England going forward in 2022, for a team that's desperate for bodies along the offensive line.
