Patriots’ special teamer Brenden Schooler earns All-Pro honors

New England Patriots special teamer Brenden Schooler was named an All-Pro Core Teamer by the NFL Players Association on Wednesday.

Schooler was signed by the Patriots as a rookie free agent in May 2022. He has become a valuable part of the special teams unit since then, while also seeing time at the safety position.

The 2023 season saw him play in 10 games. He blocked a 49-yard field goal attempt against the Miami Dolphins in September. He also had a stretch where he recorded at least two tackles in three straight games.

Schooler’s strong play was one of the few positives in a difficult season for New England. With legendary special teamer Matthew Slater considering retirement, Schooler has proven himself more than ready to help fill the void for years to come.
