Patriot’s Offensive Line Woes Continue

Matt Light retired, Brian Waters has yet to show up to camp, and now Robert Gallery retired citing his multiple injuries as the cause.

The Patriots starting offensive line was quite the patchwork job last season as was. Matt Light missed a game, Dan Connolly started 13 games, Dan Koppen started just 1 game, Logan Mankins missed a game, Sebastion Vollmer started just 5 games playing in 6, Ryan Wendell started 3 games playing in 14, Donald Thomas started 1 game, and Nate Solder started 13 games. You start to see a picture of uncertainty in front of Tom Brady.

Left Tackle Matt Light chose to retire, as did guard Robert Gallery who was signed this offseason, and Brian Waters has yet to report to training camp. Center Jamey Richard was signed from the Colts to add depth but already wound up on injured reserve. With all this change and no new guys coming it seems the team is willing to sit pat with Tackles Sebastion Vollmer, and Nate Solder, Guards Donald Thomas, and Logan Mankins and a competition for the center position. Having watched as 3 starters leave.
