Third-year linebacker Chase Winovich may have been on-again/off-again during the New England Patriots’ offseason workout program, but he is apparently feeling pretty good about where he is at. He said so himself during a recent media conference call, and also shared the same message on social media on Thursday:
I love being a Patriot.
Winovich, a third-round draft pick back in 2019, is coming off a solid but at times inconsistent 2020 season.
He served as the Patriots’ number two outside linebacker behind veteran John Simon, but saw some inconsistent playing time especially during the second quarter of the season. Nonetheless, Winovich managed to end the year as the team’s most effective pass rusher and registered 5.5 sacks as well as 18 hits and 33 additional hurries.
“All I can say is that I feel great overall — the best mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, you name it, that I’ve ever been,” he said during organized team activities. “I’m really excited for the opportunities that present themselves this year.”
