Patriots reach a deal with Will Svitek


The Patriots are in an uncertain spot with free agent tackle Sebastian Vollmer, but they added some depth to the position.

According to Field Yates of, the Patriots have signed former Falcons tackle Will Svitek.

Svitek missed last season with an arm injury, but started 10 games for the Falcons in 2011 when starter Sam Baker struggled.

Svitek’s a solid depth addition, but not the kind of player you want replacing Vollmer, who remains unsigned.

    Great signing! This is going to really improve our line and give us a great shot at the Superbowl!

    Aww man. Will Svitek is a good backup. Sucked that he got injured last season. Glad we didn’t need him then. Hate to see him go. Pats got themselves a good backup.

    Svitek puts them over the top. Definitely headed to the Svuper Bvowl now.

    With the way they treated Wes Welker (they’ll be sorry!) and the way Bill Belichik treated him a few years ago the last of the classy glow has officially come off the patriots – you treat enough people – players – like dirt and it will eventually bite you in the ass, and eventually is now.

    Peyton Manning is chuckling right now.

    The pats will win the AFC east and get into the playoffs and maybe win one game but that’s about it – their glory days are over.

    FYI – I am a pats fan
