Marcus Cannon will return from injury, but the team’s current right tackle rotation of LaAdrian Waddle and Cameron Fleming are also about to hit the market. Running backs Rex Burkhead and Dion Lewis are both free agents, and it will be interesting to see whether Belichick who rarely pays well to retain running backs and just made an exception to that rule by re signing James White in April will match what the market might offer to Lewis. And receiver Danny Amendola will hit free agency after restructuring his deal three times in five years with the Patriots.Philadelphia EaglesThe Eagles already have done much of their offseason business by re signing talent during the regular season.
