The Patriots announced they signed offensive tackle Cedrick Lang on Monday.

Lang, 26, spent the entire 2018 season on the Vikings’ injured reserve list after undergoing surgery on his right leg during the preseason.

The Vikings did not tender Lang for $570,000 as an exclusive rights free agent.

He entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with the Giants out of Texas-El Paso in 2016. Lang is a former college basketball player.

The Giants waived him at the end of training camp in 2016.

Denver signed Lang on Jan. 27, 2017, but waived him before the start of the season. Minnesota signed him to its practice squad, where he spent the entire 2017 season.

  1. He’s 6’9” and weighs 295 lbs. He’s turning 27-years-old on May 12th. Let’s see what Dante Scarnecchia can do with him.

  2. To kick his tyres thru camp/preseason -why not? it won’t cost much and they need o-line bodies. It’s interesting that he caught a few as TE in college, so reverting him back to a 300lb blocking TE just maybe piqued Belichick – and at least it shows some of that versatility coach prioritises.

  3. Worth a flier on the vet minimum he’s likely getting. If he pans out good signing, if not he’s still likely a useful camp body and maybe he’ll make the practice squad.

  4. Just BB playin chess……..while…….well u know the rest!
