if @HerbieTeope said, the Patriots trade for Chiefs OT/G Yasir Durant, giving up the 2022 7th-rounder they bought from the Raiders along with Trent Brown in March.
Durant (6-6, 330) entered the NFL as an undrafted Missouri FA in ’20. Appeared in 11 games (1 start).

Durant signed as an undrafted free agent in 2020 after playing collegiately in Missouri.
The 6-foot-6, 330-pound Durant plays tackle, and he played 11 games last season. He started in the team’s week 17 loss to the Chargers, taking 100 percent of the team’s attacking shots.
On the Patriots’ roster, Isaiah Wynn and Trent Brown are the tackle starters, with a depth map featuring Yodny Cajuste, Justin Herron and Korey Cunningham. With the team having to narrow the roster to 53 players on Tuesday, some of those low numbers will change.
