Ben Watson‘s four-game suspension is over, which leaves the veteran eligible to get into the lineup as another option for Brady. Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels spent some time on Tuesday talking about what Watson brings to the table.
“Well, Ben’s a versatile guy, he’s a smart guy. He’s certainly made a lot of plays in his career,” McDaniels said on a conference call. “Just gives an element of speed and experience at the tight end position. He’s been a productive guy, made plays under pressure. So, Ben’s coming back here; it was great to have him back this offseason into training camp, and hopefully we’ll be able to move forward with him in a role that suits his skillset and our team.”
