Patriots sign former Texans Chase Winovich NFL Draft , Colts DE/LB John Simon, make two practice squad changes The New England Patriots have to make two important roster moves after placing LB Ja’Whaun Bentley and RB Rex Burkhead on the injured reserve Wednesday morning. One move was bringing back Kenjon Barner at running back. They other is apparently signing former Colts and Texans linebacker John Simon, per ESPN’s Mike Reiss and Field Yates.Simon has experience in a Patriots-type system after his time with the Texans and he should be able to find a role on the edge for New England. He’s not necessarily a one-for-one replacement for Bentley Chase Winovich Buffalo Bills Jersey , who was a middle linebacker, but Simon’s presence should put either Dont’a Hightower or Kyle Van Noy in the middle of the defense.Alternatively, Simon could be a back-up on the edge behind Hightower and Van Noy as Elandon Roberts takes on a larger role at middle linebacker.The Patriots move to replace Burkhead was bringing back Kenjon Barner. The Patriots running back depth chart is Sony Michel Color Rush Chase Winovich Jersey , Kenjon Barner and James White. New England needed more of a grinder because Barner and White are not particularly powerful between the tackles.The Patriots have also swapped in defensive back David Jones for wide receiver Jace Billingsley on the practice squad. Perhaps this suggests that Kenjon Barner made Billingsley redundant at practice. There was a method to Antonio Brown‘s social media madness over the last few days.As previously reported on , the letter from Raiders General Manager Mike Mayock informing Brown he’d been fined for missing practices was the impetus for the wideout to seek his release from the team and he reportedly didn’t work alone when it came time to force his way out of Oakland.Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that Brown sought advice from social media consultants about how to find his way to free agency. That effort began with posting the letter from Mayock on Instagram Wednesday, which touched off an argument that led to reports that the Raiders planned to suspend Brown.Brown didn’t get suspended and apologized on Friday Youth Chase Winovich Jersey , but was back on social media that night to post a video that featured a taped conversation between him and Raiders head coach Jon Gruden. After the Raiders fined him and moved to void guarantees in his contract on Saturday, Brown went back on social media to ask for his release and it was granted a short time later.Now Brown is a member of the Patriots and one imagines that he won’t need a consultant to tell him that Bill Belichick would prefer he curtail his social media habits while on the New England roster.
