New England Patriots 2017 third-round pick Antonio Garcia spent the weekend in limbo, but the offensive tackle has a new home.
The New York Jets claimed Garcia off waivers Monday. The Patriots waived Garcia with a non-football illness designation Friday. If he had gone unclaimed, he would have reverted to the Patriots’ non-football illness/reserve list for the second straight season.
The Patriots selected Garcia 85th overall in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He never suited up in a preseason or regular season game for the Patriots.
