  • Patriots' Ja'Whaun Bentley: Takes the field

    Bentley (arm) is participating in OTAs, Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald reports.

    Bentley suffered an arm injury in the Patriots' playoff loss to the Bills in January and never returned to action. His participation in OTAs is a good sign that there was no lingering effects for the fourth-year pro. Bentley has been a focal point of the Patriots' linebacker unit the last two seasons, totaling 200 tackles, 2.5 sacks, four passes defensed and three forced fumbles over that time.

  • Patriots' Ja'Whaun Bentley: Leads team in tackles

    Bentley (arm) finished the 2021 regular season with a team-high 109 tackles and a sack in 16 games.

    Per Paul Perillo of the Patriots' official site, Bentley, who is a pending unrestricted free agent, displayed "the ability to stop the run while providing occasional pressure as a blitzer" in his fourth NFL season. Perillo suggests that Bentley isn't likely to break the bank in free agency and is thus a candidate to be re-signed by New England this offseason. Bentley exited the Patriots' wild-card round loss to the Bills with an arm injury, but he should be at full strength for OTAs.
