Russ Hochstein Traded to Broncos

The game of musical chairs between Bill Belichick and his former GM/coaches continued Tuesday as the Patriots have reportedly traded veteran offensive lineman Russ Hochstein to the Broncos for a seventh round draft choice in 2010. The number of players that have moved on to Kansas City with former Patriots GM Scott Pioli (Matt Cassel, Mike Vrabel) and Denver with former offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels (Hochstein, Jabar Gaffney, Chad Jackson, LaMont Jordan, LeKevin Smith) continues to grow. It’s no secret McDaniels is trying to change the culture around Denver to more reflect that of New England. So far it seems Belichick has embraced his former offensive coordinator as a worth adversary, unlike Mr. Mangini in New York, now Cleveland.

In other Patriots moves, the team has signed third round pick Tyrone McKenzie. They have also released safety/linebacker Tank Williams

My Take: Hochstein has been an important backup over the past few years as injuries are a factor when it comes to offensive linemen. Through the draft and free agency the Patriots have stocked up on young talent and seemingly feel they have enough bodies to fill in the gaps when necessary.
