It's certain Aaron Hernandez won't be with the Patriots this year, and there are still questions pertaining to the health of Rob Gronkowski and Jake Ballard. The Patriots used to be incredibly strong at tight end, but have a lot of questions at the position this year.
Undrafted rookie tight end Zach Sudfeld could be one of Tom Brady's newest assets. CSNNE's Kevin Walsh spoke to Sudfeld at training camp to go over Sudfeld's progress.
"It's a very intense process, but it's great to be out here," said Sudfeld, who saw some time practicing with the first team.
Sudfeld, a 6-foot-7, 253-pound tight end who played at Nevada, will be competing with Michael Hoomanawanui, Daniel Fells and Ballard to be a tight end this season, but Sudfeld said he is focused on improving throughout the preseason in all aspects.
"My job is just to come out here and compete, and wherever they put me, I got to do my job," Sudfeld said. "It doesn't matter who it's with. I'm going to go out there and do my best and continue to improve."
