New England Trades For Multiple Offensive Linemen

Billy Woods | August 29th, 2019

The New England Patriots traded for a pair of offensive linemen in a move to help protect the aging quarterback Tom Brady. The Patriots traded for Jermaine Eluemunor and Korey Cunningham to add depth to their offensive line.

The Patriots acquired Eluemunor from the Baltimore Ravens for an undisclosed draft pick. Although Eluemunor was drafted in the fifth-round of the 2017 draft, he was slated to be the Ravens starting left guard going onto the season. But the young guard couldn’t stay healthy and was eventually forced down the depth chart. Even without the consistency of health, his size and speed make him a viable option to play tackle or guard.

Cunningham spent six games last season starting for the Arizona Cardinals at left tackle. Being a late-round pick, Cunningham seems to be the perfect fit to be a Patriot. The organization is famous for finding diamonds in the rough. Cunningham has shown ability to step in and be a reliable starting option. The Cardinals will receive a sixth-round pick from the Patriots for the young left tackle.

The Ravens have been active in the trade market this season. Eric DeCosta took over as general manager for the organization this past offseason and has already completed four trades in that short time. One of those trades was former franchise quarterback and Super Bowl champion Joe Flacco, who was sent to the Denver Broncos for a fourth-round pick.

The Patriots are notorious for bolstering a strong offensive line. The aging Brady needs as much protection from the young pass-rushers around the league, especially with some of the teams they predict to be facing in the Super Bowl. The organization is bracing for yet another championship run. The Patriots have competed in four of the past five Super Bowls, winning three of them.
