Patriots new linebacker Akeem Ayers is just happy to be able to play
Akeem Ayers is pumped to be on a team he can play. For the past 5 weeks Akeem Ayers has been a healthy scratch for the Tennessee Titans. Well they were able to make a move and pick up a sixth round draft pick by sending Ayers and a seventh to the Patriots.
“I’m pretty much just happy to be here. Obviously, I wasn’t playing there, and I just happened to get in a good situation here,” Ayers said, via the Boston Herald. “As I’m learning the playbook, I’m trying to simplify things as much as I can and the coaches are helping me out with that. We’re trying to keep things simple and try to learn to the best I can to play as fast as I can when I’m on the field.”
Ayers was a pretty solid player in his early years racking up 9 sacks and 2 interceptions along with 231 tackles. The Patriots quietly get better every year.
