The New England Patriots signed an Ohio State product who can play outside linebacker and tight end. Sound familiar?
They immediately drew parallels between Berry and three-time Super Bowl champion Mike Vrabel.
Ohio State, outside linebacker that can play tightend… this sounds familiar

Bill's gonna use him to be the new Vrabel

Vrabel, an All-Pro linebacker, was used as a red-zone tight end on the Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs. The now-Tennessee Titans head coach, who also attended Ohio State, caught 12 career touchdowns including two in the playoffs.
Vrabel also was a Pro Bowl selection with the Patriots, so that’s a lofty comparison for Berry. But perhaps the rookie could play a versatile role if he makes the Patriots.
