Patriots acquire veteran center Russell Bodine from Bills

Patriots acquire veteran center Russell Bodine from Bills”

However, he comes to the Patriots with a great deal of starting experience at center. According to Field Yates of ESPN, New England has placed Andrews on injured reserve, effectively ending his season.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, New England is acquiring Buffalo Bills center Russell Bodine for a sixth-round draft pick.

Bodine is a seldom penalized lineman, taking just six holding penalties over the last three seasons.

The flurry of trades come as the Patriots appear to have some major changes coming along the offensive line in the wake of center David Andrews being hospitalized with a blood clot in his lung.

Ted Karras was projected to start at center with Andrews at risk of missing the 2019 season.

But the move dooms the fate of centers James Ferentz and Tyler Gauthier, both of whom played every offensive snap in the Patriots' final preseason game against the Giants.

Adding another interior offensive lineman also means the injury to Hjalte Froholdt, a swing center himself, is more serious.

He's been their starting center for the past four years. He then jumped to Buffalo, where he started the first 10 games before going down with a leg injury. Though never considered one of the premier linemen or centers in the National Football League, he has been fairly reliable in pass-protection over his career - and fairly durable as well.
