Free agent David Andrews ‘would love to stay’ with the Patriots but is ‘up for anything’

The New England Patriots have a sizable free agency class, and one member of it is starting center and team captain David Andrews. For the first time since joining the team as a rookie free agent in 2015, Andrews is headed for the open market — leaving his future in question.

According to a recent social media post of his, however, his intentions are clear: he and his wife, Mackenzie, would prefer staying put (h/t The Camera Guys).

We would love to stay. New England is our home. But we are up for anything.

Andrews is one of 23 Patriots head for unrestricted free agency alongside other core players of years past such as Joe Thuney, James White and Lawrence Guy. So even if he returns, there is a chance the team could look a lot different in 2021 than it did the last few seasons.

“I’ve seen a lot of people be in the position that I’m in now,” he said earlier this year. “I’ve been fortunate to play this game and not really see the business side of it, personally, just been able to go out there and play. That’s why you start playing the game in kindergarten. Was able to get to do that for a while, and now I’m in the middle of the business side of it — and I’m not a business person. It is what it is, but that’s just part of this business. We’ll see.”
