The New England Patriots have spent a ton of money this off-season. On Wednesday, they took care of two players that helped them win Super Bowls as they re-signed both defensive lineman Lawrence Guy and running back James White.
James White scored the most important touchdown in Super Bowl LI when he scored on a one-yard run to cap off a tremendous comeback for the Patriots. Lawrence Guy was in his second year with the New England Patriots when they returned from a 28-3 deficit against the Falcons.
With all the new faces that have been added to the New England Patriots roster during the 2021 NFL off-season, it's nice to see the Patriots take care of the players that helped them get to where they are today.
