According to Field Yates of ESPNBoston.com, tackle Sebastian Vollmer and the New England Patriots have agreed on a 4-yr deal to keep the talented offensive lineman in the fold. Vollmer became a free agent March 12th and tested the free agency waters, however, in the end he chose to return to Foxboro. The versatile tackle can play either on the right or left side, providing the type of versatility Bill Belichick likes. Darin Gantt of Profootballtalk.com writes: ‘The Patriots have agreed to a contract with right tackle Sebastian Vollmer. Vollmer’s signing could shake something loose for Cincinnati’s Andre Smith, as the two right tackles seemed to be stuck after Jake Long reached a deal with the Rams. Volllmer’s back issues have been a concern, but the Patriots must be convinced he’s well, and now they’ve got their entire starting line under wraps for next season.’     var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

  • Can't be concerned about his Back? if they signed him for 4 years!
  • They should be! Once a dback starts to unravel, it never returns to normal!
  • Glad to see him return.. injuries not withstanding, he is still one of the best........
