Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe reports that signs are pointing towards Patriots S Brandon Meriweather losing his starting job in New England’s defense.
Young highlights the fact that the Patriots have brought in two free agent safeties in recent days as a strong suggestion that the team is looking to upgrade the position. Young also notes that Sergio Brown had received more reps than Meriweather in recent days. The report also mentions that two leagues sources have informed then that the team is happy with Meriweather performance so far.
There’s still time to turn the situation around but Meriweather finds himself in a tough position.
