The Buffalo Bills released Jalen Wydermyer and he already has a new home. His new team is their biggest rival too.

Today, the New England Patriots signed former Texas A&M tight end Jalen Wydermyer who was once projected as a first round pick, after a great career.

Wydermyer would drop out of the NFL Draft last year after putting up horrible numbers at his combine. He ran a 5.03 forty, had a 9’1 broad jump and a 25 inch vertical. Those numbers were bad, and did not look right. Wydermyer who stands at 6’4, and weighs 255 pounds is a prototypical sized tight end. The Patriots could used a tight end after Hunter Henry went down with an injury this week in practice.

Wydermyer will compete with Devin Asiasi, Dalton Keene, and Matt Sokol for the projected third and final tight end spot.

During his three seasons with the Aggies, he caught 118 passes for 1,468 yards and 16 touchdowns in 35 games.

I like this pick up for the Patriots. I was high on him and he signed with my Bills. This one will hurt if he makes the Patriots roster.
