The Patriots are hopeful that they can re-sign Dan Connolly, a guard and center for the team. However, the Patriots are not the only team interested in signing him.
The Seattle Seahawks, who need a center now after they traded Max Unger to the New Orleans Saints in the Jimmy Graham deal, are also interested. As are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Chicago Bears, and the Miami Dolphins.
Connolly has been with the Patriots since the 2008 season. However, he’s coming off of a rough season.
While he can play center, he’s been primarily a guard in recent years. The Bears and Seahawks reportedly want him to be a center with their teams if he signs there.
