The New England Patriots plan on scheming a specific plan for Raiders TE Darren Waller, according to Doug Kyed of NESN.com. “He’s good and we’ve got something for him this weekend,” Patriots cornerback JC Jackson said Friday.
Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore said Waller “knows how to get open” since he played wide receiver. “It’s maybe the way he runs his routes,” Gilmore said. “You know, it’s not, like, it’s not slow like — some receivers like more bigger guys. He’s more leaner, can come at his breaks, so that’s what he does well.”
Bill Belichick likes to limit the opponent's top talent. It is no surprise that Waller would be the target.
