During their stay in Flowery Branch last week, Bill Belichick's Patriots must have seen something they liked in Falcons backup guard/tackle Quinn Ojinnaka. D. Led reports:
Falcons offensive lineman Quinn Ojinnaka has been traded to the New England Patriots for an undisclosed draft pick, the Falcons announced.
The Falcons have some spare talent at offensive line, but haven't quite seemed to be bursting with depth. Last year the fivesome weathered injuries to Sam Baker and others, with Ojinnaka making five starts at right guard in place of the injured Harvey Dahl. Ojinnaka has participated in 39 games in four years as a Falcon. He also has to serve a one-game suspension during this season's opening week for a domestic dispute.
Ojinnaka joins a Patriots roster that currently lists seven utility offensive linemen, in addition to the eight offensive linemen with designated positions. Starting guard Logan Mankins has yet to report for camp, and his backup Nick Kaczur is injured.
