If you are a New England Patriots Fan, these news should get you all sorts of excited!
Bill Belichick continues to work thru his new cap space especially now that certain players have opted out of the season due to COVID-19.
While nothing is happening really around the AFC East, Belichick went ahead and worked quite the deal yesterday for Houston Texans RB, Lamar Miller.

The patriots were eyeing another option at running back as Sony Michel underwent an offseason foot surgery. Making Michel currently unable to perform as he recovers.
Lets also not forget that Brandon Bolden has decided to opt out of the 2020 season so leaving space for Miller to join James White, Rex Burkhead, Damien Harris and undrafted free agent, JJ Taylor.
While Miller suffered an ACL injury missing the 2019 season, his three active seasons in Houston bring some hot numbers:
2934 running yards, 13 touchdowns on 716 carries, and his best season came in 2018 when he averaged 4.6 yards per carry.

Michael Jackson, CB – Detroit Lions!
As if the news of bringing Lamar miller weren’t enough, Bill also mastered another transaction by bringing CB Michael Jackson!

Jackson joins the Patriots as Detroit agrees to trade for an undisclosed 2022 draft pick.
While last year he only played one game where he didn’t create any statistics, this will be a Patriots team where he may just be the dark horse to bring quite the performance. This is a signing worth keeping your eyes on for sure!
These Patriots new signings are definitely creative and address certain areas of interest.
Now, I think the areas to focus on for Bill next are definitely Tight-End and maybe another Wide Receiver.
