PFW's DE battle verdict!
Jake Bequette vs. Jermaine Cunningham
The arguments: Lowe characterizes Bequette's rookie year of 2012 as a "developmental" one, almost like a college red-shirt year, in which he barely saw the field at all and was inactive for nearly every game, but that he feels the Patriots have plans for this former third-round draft choice. He adds that Cunningham has had enough chances to prove himself over the past few seasons and hasn’t made the most of those opportunities. Brittain counters by pointing out that when he’s had a chance to start games, Cunningham has been productive. She also believes the jury is still out on Bequette because he hasn't been on the field enough. She thinks the "year off" last season has hindered, rather than helped, Bequette's development.
Now it's your turn to weigh in. Who has a better chance of making the Patriots roster at backup defensive end – Jake Bequette or Jermaine Cunningham?
