Patriots reportedly make surprising cut on offensive line, dumping 2017 draft pick

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft left talks with the team's 2017 NFL football draft picks at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough Mass. Thursday

With left tackle Nate Solder gone to the Giants in free agency, Garcia was expected to be a candidate to replace him. Garcia missed the entire 2017 season on the non-football illness list with reported blood clots in his lungs. Of course, he did face an uphill battle as he reportedly lost 40 pounds last season.

Last year's third-round draft pick and the #85 pick overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, Antonio Garcia's brief stint with the Patriots ends on a sour note today.

Garcia had been taking part in the Patriots' voluntary offseason program, which just concluded its fourth week.

Although there was some predraft talk that Wynn might make more sense at guard, Patriots offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia said on Friday that the team will definitely give him a chance to play tackle. He noted Wynn has "great traits", and Brown, who primarily played right tackle with the 49ers, will also get work on the left side. "I'm really excited about working with these guys. And we'll see what we can do from there".

"He's played left tackle in the best conference in America", Scarnecchia said, per ESPN's Mike Reiss on Twitter.

With the left tackle job up for grabs, Garcia seemed like someone who might be able to compete for the spot.
