Patriots sign former Dolphins offensive lineman, work out three other players

New, comments

The Patriots are churning the back-end of their roster.

The New England Patriots have signed for Miami Dolphins 2015 4th round OG Jamil Douglas to the practice squad, per ESPN’s Mike Reiss. The Patriots have also worked out three other linemen.

The 6’4, 305 pound Douglas was the 114th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, three picks after the Patriots selected OG Tre Jackson. Douglas started 6 games at guard and center for the Dolphins as a rookie, but did not make the 2016 roster. Douglas spent the first month of the season on the Dolphins practice squad and was promoted for one game.

The Patriots released OL Ian Silberman from the practice squad to make space for Douglas.

The Patriots also worked out two offensive tackles in Ryan Mack and Pearce Slater, along with defensive end Jordan Williams. These are players to watch if the Patriots suffer an injury on the offensive line, or if the Patriots try to move Geneo Grissom back to the practice squad and are unsuccessful.

The Patriots practice squad is now:

OG Chris Barker


OG Jamil Douglas

WR Shaq Evans

OG Chase Farris

RB Tyler Gaffney

FB Glenn Gronkowski

WR Devin Lucien

RB Bishop Sankey

SS Vinnie Sunseri

WR DeAndrew White

Sunseri is the lone defensive player on the practice squad after the Patriots promoted Grissom and DT Anthony Johnson to the active roster last week.
