Joejuan Williams to play multiple roles for Pats?May 24, 2020 | 12:00 AM
ESPN's Mike Reiss reports Patriots DB Joejuan Williams will be asked to become a "jack-of-all-trades" this season.
Analysis: New England's second-round pick last year, Williams totaled 80 defensive snaps (including 62 out wide) behind Stephon Gilmore, Jason McCourty, Jonathan Jones, and J. C. Jackson. With all returning in 2020, the Patriots are obviously looking for Williams to fill some safety-type responsibilities alongside Devin McCourty, Patrick Chung, 2020 second-round pick Kyle Dugger and free-agent acquisition Adrian Phillips. Williams previously played safety in New England's 2019 preseason finale and has the size (6'3/212) to cover tight ends in the slot. The 22-year-old is expected to play both roles (among others) this year.
