In order to get free agency signings Jared Veldheer and Dontrelle Inman onto their 90-man roster, the reigning world champions parted ways with a pair of undrafted rookies playing the same positions as the two veteran additions: New England released offensive tackle Calvin Anderson and wide receiver Xavier Ubosi.24 hours later, the two youngsters have found a new home: according to the NFL’s transaction wire, both Anderson and Ubosi have been claimed off the waiver wire by the New York Jets. The two rookies become ex-Patriots number four and five on New York’s roster as they join Harvey Langi, Eric Smith and fellow waiver wire claim Darryl Roberts with New England’s division rivals.Anderson was originally signed by the Patriots on May 2, alongside nine other free agents, as a developmental offensive tackle. Ubosi Hjalte Froholdt Jersey Draft , meanwhile, came to New England four days later from the University of Alabama Birmingham. Playing in a run-first offense, he was also considered to be a project at this point in his career — despite having adequate size and athleticism to carve out a depth spot on the Patriots’ wide receiver depth chart.New England’s roster, meanwhile, sits at the maximum of 90 men with the additions of Veldheer and Inman. Van Noy has already flipped the page to the upcoming season."WhitePatriots News Opinion and Analysis Contribute!

Three months removed from ending their season in the best possible fashion, but later than 30 other teams, the world champions are back at work: the 2019 campaign and its offseason workout program are already in full swing.“We’re used to it by now, to have a little shorter break,” said linebacker Kyle Van Noy about the Patriots’ workout rhythm following another playoff run. Van Noy spoke to reporters yesterday about getting the necessary work in at this time of the year and laying the foundation for the next challenge ahead: becoming the first team to defend its title since the Patriots did it after their victory in Super Bowl 38 Hjalte Froholdt NFL Jersey , fifteen years ago.Van Noy is one of the most experienced players on a New England defense that is coming off a Super Bowl performance for the ages. However, he is quick to point out that the team is aware that the page needs to be turned to a new season rather quickly. “We’re definitely not satisfied,” he said. “If you guys saw how we’re working right now you’d be pretty impressed with the grit and the tenacity we’re showing this offseason already.”“We have a lot of guys here that are motivated for greatness — not just with the coach but with the players,” the 28-year-old continued. “In every room you have a veteran like a [Devin] McCourty and a [Patrick] Chung and a [Dont’a] Hightower. Those guys are motivated, and so are the young guys: the young guys are ready to prove they can play, that goes offensively and defensively. And you got veteran guys that hold that standard and they do a really good job.”One of the veteran guys is Van Noy himself: in his third offseason with the Patriots since they acquired him via trade from the Detroit Lions, he knows the routine and what needs to be done to properly prepare for the grind that lies ahead. “I had the time of my life [after the Patriots’ Super Bowl win], but now I’m focused already on another season and I want to win again,” he said when speaking about looking forward at this point in time.For him personally, this means following the Patriots’ old mantra: do your job — something Van Noy has done ever since his arrival in New England. It has allowed him to become a versatile mainstay of the Patriots defense Hjalte Froholdt NFL Draft , and playmaker at the linebacker position. “At the end of the day, I’m just trying to win and do my part and do whatever is asked. Whether it’s to rush, cover, do it all: just help out the defense the best as possible,” he noted.Of course, the time away from football following the Super Bowl certainly helped the defense as well as it sets its sights on the 2019 season. “I think everyone is rejuvenated,” said Van Noy. “We’re ready for a new challenge.”
