The Patriots have agreed to terms with offensive lineman Ulrick John, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

John, 25, played five games for the Packers last season. He played 40 offensive snaps and 16 on special teams.

The Colts made him a seventh-round pick in 2014, but he spent his rookie season on injured reserve.

John spent part of 2015 on the Colts’ practice squad before the Dolphins signed him to their active roster on November 2 of that season. He played two games with the Dolphins in 2015.

He saw action in three games with the Cardinals in 2016.

  1. I can’t wait to hear all the Patriot cultists to talk about how this was a brilliant move by BB and how this guy will be the greatest signing ever….or at least in the last week.

  2. I don’t see the Pats going O-line in this draft UNLESS a REALLY TOP TIER prospect unexpectedly falls to them….they have a pretty deep pile of guys on the roster right now to choose from & Dante will get the most out of that bunch……I doubt they even draft a QB…. Brady is locked up 2 more years & it wouldn’t surprise me to see his current contract extended a couple more years soon….
    Can’t wait to see how the draft unfolds!!!
    Go Pats!!!!

  3. “I doubt they even draft a QB…. ”

    I don’t know about that. I don’t think so with the first rounders, but probably in the 2nd round. The Pats offense is so complex they will want any QB that is going to follow Brady to have a couple years to learn it before he becomes the starter.

  4. The two words Belichick uses when acquiring or drafting players is “good value”. Given the QBs going in round one, I expect it will be hard for Bill to see good value in a 1st round QB unless a top rated one on their board falls.

    A lot of teams appear ready to copy his M O and trade down so he may trade up if he sees good value in doing so but I doubt it will be for a QB.
