Pats Acquire Special Teams Ace From Lions
The Patriots appear to have filled the void created in their defensive secondary by the loss of Cyrus Jones, from outside of the organization.
In a day filled with trades made by New England head coach and GM Bill Belichick, the first one announced was a deal that sent cornerback and special teams ace Johnson Bademosi to the Pats from the Detroit Lions.
In exchange for Bademosi, the Pats shipped a a sixth round pick in the 2019 draft back to Detroit.
Bademosi will likely fill the final cornerback spot that was up for grabs, after Cyrus Jones tore his right ACL in the team's final preseason game.
While he probably won't see a big work load on defense the speedy DB will almost certainly become a core special teamer if New England.
Bademosi must have done enough in the two teams' preseason battle to show Belichick and company that he was worth bringing in, if need be.
