New England Patriots running back Sony Michel may not be physically ready for Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season, according to The Athletic’s Jeff Howe. That will likely put his starting job in jeopardy for the foreseeable future. Michel underwent a foot surgery this offseason, and started training camp on the physically unable to perform list.
The New England Patriots’ top-ranked defense suffered some major losses this offseason, with safety Patrick Chung opting out as just the latest personnel blow. In true Bill Belichick fashion, however, it is what it is: the team will find a way to replace the lost talent, which means that it also will need to find a new strong safety to take over Chung’s role in the slot and as a hybrid box defender. Who will the Patriots look at in order to do that?
You wouldn't seek out a military general for tips on NFL roster building, but Donald Trump apparently believes Bill Belichick's strengths could translate to the battlefield.
