Svitek adds depth to New England O-Line
Amidst the flurry of free agent activity over the course of the past week, the Patriots added some depth to their offensive line by signing former Falcon's tackle Will Svitek. It is a short-term, low money deal (1 year/$1 million), and it is anticipated that Svitek will compete for a spot on the roster during training camp.
Will Svitek has sixteen career NFL starts
Svitek stands at 6'6", 308 pounds, and is versatile in his ability to play both tackle positions. Svitek played defensive line in college at Stanford, but was converted to an offensive tackle after being selected in the sixth round by the Chiefs in 2005. It has been an interesting road for Svitek, who spent three seasons in KC, before leaving the game in 2008. He returned in 2009 to Atlanta, where he would start ten games in a Falcons uniform.
