Veteran tight end Matt LaCosse has become the eighth New England Patriots player to opt out of the 2020 season, according to ESPN’s Field Yates. 

LaCosse’s wife, Jessica, is pregnant and due during the season, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss. 

Other players on the Patriots to opt out are linebacker Dont’a Hightower, starting right tackle Marcus Cannon, guard Najee Toran, safety Patrick Chung, running backs Brandon Bolden, fullback Dan Vitale and receiver Marqise Lee.

LaCosse was entering training camp as the projected starter at tight end. Now, rookies Devin Asiasi and Dalton Keene will battle for the majority of the snaps.

This one hurts a bit snd what does that say about the depth of that position? He was not impactful in any way last year and yet they needed him badly this year. Two rookies and an Izzo going forward? They have to sign a veteran TE now I would think.
