Check Out This Weird, Probably Irrelevant Fact About 2022 Patriots

Not a group of Giants, these Patriots

The 2022 New England Patriots are a short group.

Like, the roster that Bill Belichick and company have assembled apparently is really short.

The NFL on Thursday sent out its annual Week 1 roster breakdowns. And, as pointed out by Alex Barth of 98.5 The Sports Hub, the Patriots are tied with the Houston Texans for the shortest roster in the AFC with an average height of 6.15 inches. Only the Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals have shorter rosters in the entire NFL.

Take a look:

Rookie cornerback Marcus Jones is the shortest player on New England’s 53-man roster at 5-foot-8, with offensive tackle Trent Brown the tallest at 6-foot-8. Practice squad running back J.J. Taylor is the shortest player overall at 5-foot-6, though he isn’t factored into the NFL’s breakdown.

The Patriots and their undersized roster will visit the Pittsburgh Steelers — who have an average height of 6.19 inches — on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
