Patriots announce new jersey numbers for five players Limited Malcolm Mitchell Jersey , including running back Sony Michel Few weekends change the NFL-wide landscape as much as the league’s roster cutdown days. Hundreds of players get released, while others get traded; some get claimed off the waiver wire or signed to practice squads and active rosters. The New England Patriots saw plenty of turnover as well during the process of finalizing the initial version of their 53-man team.One result of all the moves is new jersey numbers for some of the players: they either have not had any with the Patriots before – those added via waivers, to be exact –, while others have decided to switch from one number to another. Let’s take a look at the five men, who will wear new numbers (via the team’s Twitter account):Newly signed wideouts Chad Hansen and Amara Darboh received their first jersey numbers with New England. Hansen’s #16 jersey was primarily worn by quarterbacks in the past: Jim Plunkett, Scott Zolak and Matt Cassel all donned the number during their time with the team. Meanwhile, Darboh’s #82 formerly belonged to tight ends like Jim Whalen and Daniel Graham and wide receivers like Vincent Brisby and Josh Boyce.In the meantime, Sony Michel Devin McCourty Jersey , J.C. Jackson and Duke Dawson all decided to switch from one number to another: Michel wore #29 before the switch, while Jackson shared #34 with running back Rex Burkhead. Dawson was given #42 earlier this offseason. Their new numbers also have a lot of history in New England.Michel’s number was most prominently carried by defensive backs, as Patriots Hall of Famer Raymond Clayborn, Logan Ryan and Eugene Wilson all had #26 on their jerseys. Jackson’s #27 does not have the same proud history but still a few wearers worth noting: Ellis Hobbs, Ron Bolton, and Kyle Arrington all used it during their careers in New England. Finally, Dawson’s #29 was once worn by guys like LeGarrette Blount, Harold Jackson and Earthwind Moreland.Patriots X-Factors against the Houston Texans The NFL regular season is back Authentic Julian Edelman Jersey Salute to Service , which means it’s back to the normal weekly stuff. The Patriots’ first opponent for the 2018 will be the Houston Texans. The Texans are coming off a disappointing 4-12 season after back-to-back AFC South titles, but they still have a very strong talent base that could give the Patriots trouble. In addition to their talent level, they run a similar offensive and defensive scheme that the Patriots run with head coach Bill O’Brien running the ship. However, that storyline is mostly irrelevant once the ball is kicked off as it comes down to player execution for both teams. The Patriots can look to start up their 2018 season with a nice win against a solid team that fell down due to an absurd amount of injuries to key players. These are the two players who can make the biggest difference for the Patriots in Week 1:Offense: RB James WhiteWhite isn’t a surprising name as an X-Factor type player given he’s always been THAT guy for the past two seasons. White is the guy that Tom Brady and Josh McDaniels trust in a got to have it situations and this game will have that moment barring exceptionally poor play from either team. Pass receiving, pass protection, or grinding out short yards may be White’s role especially given the Texans’ LB are more run and chase guys that can be exposed in space. Sony Michel originally was going to be my pick for this, but the Patriots backfield situation is very fluent due to his knee issues early in camp. With that in mind, I felt that White will be the one who is asked to pick up the slack in the early going. Defense: EDGE Trey FlowersWhoever is manning the left edge of the Patriots defense has a lot to deal with. It’s important that Flowers Limited Kevin Faulk Jersey , Adrian Clayborn, and Deatrich Wise not allow Watson to escape the pocket and be able to create plays with his feet. Keeping Watson in the pocket is a must because a broken scramble play puts pressure on the secondary to be able to stick. The interior rushers also have to be able to collapse the pocket to prevent Watson from escaping that way. I assume Clayborn will be the right defensive end and Trey Flowers playing from left end in the starting lineup with Wise seeing some action as well, especially on passing downs. If Flowers is able to hold his edge along with Clayborn continuing to play like he has in the preseason, I like the Patriots’ chances of bottling up Watson if the secondary can do its job.
