Could RB Rex Burkhead Be on the Chopping Block for the Patriots This Offseason?

For the Pats the site has picked running back Rex Burkhead as the player that could find himself released. Here’s what they have to say about Burkhead getting cut.

New England Patriots – RB Rex Burkhead

Dead Cap Hit $1M, Cap Saving $3M

Running back Rex Burkhead actually set new highs for his time with the New England Patriots during this past season with his 302 rushing yards and 279 receiving yards. But the fact of the matter is that he is a part-time player on an offense that needs something approaching a full teardown.

Burkhead played on just 27.2% of the Patriots offensive snaps in 2019 and averaged 5 carries and 2.9 targets per game. His salary is too much for a limited jack of all trades.
