Report: Patriots won’t pick up Danny Shelton’s option

The Patriots aren’t planning to exercise the fifth-year option on defensive tackle Danny Shelton, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

New England still could sign him to a long-term deal, though.

The fifth-year option would have cost $7.14 million for the 2019 season, and the Patriots have no idea how Shelton will fit into their defense.

We have a lot of guys in that room right now that have produced in the NFL. To add Kerryon to the mix, we feel really good about the running back group we have in Detroit.”

He appeared in six games with the Colts and five games with the Falcons. He played 78 special teams snaps with the Falcons but none on defense, and 69 special teams snaps with the Colts but none on defense.

According to a 1996 article by the Brownsville (Texas) Herald, the alleged victim was a college student on spring break at South Padre Island.

According to the newspaper, Patricia and Dietrich burst into a room at the Radisson hotel and took turns assaulting the student, whom had befriended them on the beach.

South Padre Island Police Chief E. E. Eunice told the Herald that the victim told police she was sleeping in a friend’s room when she was awakened by Patricia and Dietrich.

They were also students and casual friends, Eunice told the newspaper in 1996. “She told us she had palled around with them for a few days.”

According to the newspaper, the incident happened at about 6 p.m. and both Patricia, then 22, and Dietrich, then 21, were arrested later that same night after the victim identified them. They were charged with sexual assault and released on bond.

That’s when Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty got the lion’s share of preseason work while Josh McCown took a backseat until it became clear he was the best choice for the job.

After all the scouting and all the picks they gave up to get Darnold, one would think Maccagnan and the Jets hope that it isn’t so easy to reach that conclusion this time around.broncos_046_2d0928ff97f80230-180x180
