NFL trade rumors: Patriots acquire Ravens offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor

The Patriots have acquired offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor from the Ravens, according to a report from the Boston Globe.

It is unclear what the Ravens will receive in return.

Eluemunor, 24, was a fifth-round pick by the Ravens out of Texas A&M in 2017. 

He has played in 17 games over the last two years, making three starts.

The news comes after Patriots center David Andrews was hospitalized this week with blood clots.

The center started all 16 games in 2018 and has won two Super Bowls with New England. Now, his season is in jeopardy.

Ted Karras will be stepping in and will receive plenty of snaps in Andrews’ absence.

Eluemenor doesn’t seem likely to get any reps at center, as all of his career games in college and the NFL have come either at guard or tackle, but with the loss of one offensive lineman, he will at least help with depth.
