Myles Bryant

A controversial player amongst Patriots fans, Myles Bryant is undoubtedly on the roster bubble heading into the season.

Because of his inconsistency since joining the team in 2020, he's constantly been a name connected to the chopping block. Although he's had some outstanding moments throughout his career in New England, he's also had moments on the opposite side of the spectrum, leaving most asking themselves, "What was he thinking?"

That issue, combined with a seemingly stacked cornerback room led by Christian Gonzalez and Jonathan Jones, makes Bryant's chances to overcome the odds against him seem slim.

He would certainly be a quality depth piece, with his experience, understanding of how the Patriots operate, and his positional flexibility. But he will have to have impressive practices and showings in preseason over the next few weeks to potentially change his fate for the 2023 season.
