Training camp is just a few short weeks away and to get ready for it, we will be unveiling a 21 questions about the Patriots series relating to the upcoming season. Be sure to check back almost every day to see a new question.
Which new free agent signing will have the biggest impact?
The Patriots added a number of players this offseason as they were one of the most active teams in the entire league, so there are plenty of candidates.
With that being said, we’re going with tight end Jonnu Smith.
The tight end has yet to reach his full potential in the NFL, as his career highs right are 41 receptions and 448 yards. As long as he stays healthy, it would be a major surprise if he doesn’t beat both of those this year with New England.
Smith is known for his run after the catch and he’s a player that Josh McDaniels will love to find ways to get him the ball. The former Titan will line up all over the field, including in the backfield at times. He will get plenty of opportunities to make plays.
It’s also worth noting no matter who is at quarterback it’s a lot easier to throw to tight ends opposed to wide receivers, so Smith will likely get plenty of targets.
Everything seems to be going Smith’s way with the New England likes to do things, so as long as he stays healthy he’s primed to have a huge season.
Do you agree? If not, who do you think it will be?
