The New England Patriots are bringing in veteran OL Brandon Fusco for a visit on Wednesday, according to Adam Caplan.
This is the first reported interest in Fusco since he was cut loose by the Vikings a few months ago.
It’s worth mentioning that signing Fusco to a contract won’t impact a team’s compensatory picks, considering that he was released.
Fusco, 28, is a former sixth-round pick of the Vikings back in 2011. He was entering the fourth year of his six-year, $26 million contract that included $6 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $3.87 million for the 2017 season when the Vikings released him back in February.
In 2016, Fusco had appeared in 14 games for the Vikings and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 63 guard out of 72 qualifying players.
