New England Patriots waive Troy's Antonio Garcia after illness ruins rookie season

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

Despite the loss of longtime left tackle Nate Solder in free agency, the Patriots have a glut of offensive linemen.

The New England Patriots traded up to draft Troy offensive tackle Antonio Garcia a year ago. Garcia is being released with the non-football injury designation, after spending all of last season on the non-football injury list after reportedly suffering from blood clots in his lungs. After all, the Patriots were so high on him going into the 2017 NFL Draft that they actually traded up 11 spots to grab him in the third round. The Patriots are now left with rookie Isaiah Wynn, Trent Brown, LaAdrian Waddle, Matt Tobin, Cole Croston, Ulrick John and Andrew Jelks as possibilities at left tackle.


That's not ideal for a team that is looking for a new left tackle, but Scarnecchia found the bright side by focusing on the chance to get other players more work in the coming weeks. We're going to take a look at it, and see how it goes."Wynn started 12 games at left guard in 2016 and some viewed him as a guard heading into the draft".

A standout left tackle at Troy University, Garcia didn't allow a sack in over 900 snaps. He said the team felt Wynn was "smart, tough and athletic enough to play the position" in college and will take a look to see if that translates to the professional level.
