The Patriots have agreed to a trade with the Falcons to acquire fifth-year offensive guard Quinn Ojinnaka, an NFL source confirms. The Patriots will ship an undisclosed draft choice to Atlanta.
Ojinnaka (6-5 299) has appeared in 39 career games with 12 starts for the Falcons. He has been on the roster bubble in Atlanta after the Falcons drafted two interior offensive linemen this year.
The Patriots depth on the interior of the offensive line has been thinned with Logan Mankins not reporting for camp and his replacement Nick Kaczur sidelined with a serious back injury.
Ojinnaka is suspended for one game this season for violating the league's personal conduct policy.
Foxsports.com first reported the agreement.
