BREAKING: Patriots Lose Starting Left Tackle to IR

The Patriots’ offensive line is getting extremely thin, and it might be time for them to find a real solution.

Isaiah Wynn, who was drafted by New England in the first round of the 2018 draft, suffered a toe injury which was later confirmed to be turf toe in Sunday’s game against Miami. Two days later, the Patriots have placed Wynn on the injured reserve and will be out for at least eight weeks. This is a huge loss for the Patriots. They have an extremely talented team, and are currently on a roll, outscoring their first two opponents by a total score of 76-3, but this forces New England’s production on offense to come to a screeching halt.

The Patriots should be able to make do without a quality left tackle for the next month or so, but week eight the Patriots host the Cleveland Browns. Edge rusher Myles Garrett, who is already making a strong case for Defensive Player of the Year, will be in Brady’s face all day if Korey Cunningham has to play left tackle.

The Patriots do have another option though. Prior to the start of the season, there were rumors that New England was interested in pursuing a trade for Redskins left tackle, Trent Williams. Williams is in the top tier of left tackles in the league, and has been butting heads with the Redskins’ front office over the past few months and requested a trade. New England was unwilling to match Washington’s asking price but is now in a spot where they have to decide how much is Tom Brady’s blindside worth.

The Patriots have tried to remedy their offensive line issues by signing free agents and trading for inexpensive guys, but they need a quality tackle, especially for the second half of their schedule. I would keep an eye on talks of a Williams to New England trade in the coming weeks.

Just think if the browns would have taken Josh Allen

Who have they beat?

It’s bad play calling it’s bad execution. Nick it’s 3 years of baker still not settling in and playing his game

After this year if baker doesn’t prove himself. Would you rather see the browns let him go and find a new QB in the draft?

Nick, you’re the only browns fan that I love❤️ next game will be PSU vs OSU❤️
