A good sign that a team is about to release you is when you barely play any snaps. That was the case for Patriots TE Zach Sudfeld. CBS Sports has reported that the Pats have decided to part ways with the player that was supposedly going to fill the void of Aaron Hernandez. That didn’t exactly go according to plan, but all hope for Sudfeld isn’t lost. If no one claims him from the waivers, the Pats can still elect to sign him to their practice squad.
This could also be a sign that Rob Gronkowski’s return is on the horizon so don’t fall into despair just yet Patriots fans.
