Gachkar, 28, saw time in every possible regular season game for the Cowboys over the last two years. However, he has played primarily on special teams. In 2016, he saw only 76 snaps on defense with 45 of those reps coming in Week 17. The Patriots are likely looking at him as a special teamer and a depth option.

The Patriots had only four draft picks this year and they did not take a linebacker with any of those selections.

    The Pats need to focus on LBs either in next years FA or the draft. But they obviously need to focus on the in house FAs first to make sure that they don’t make more holes that they have to fill than needed
