Patriots To Visit With Former Cowboys Center Andre Gurode

According to Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald, the New England Patriots are scheduled to meet with former Dallas Cowboys center Andre Gurode on Saturday. Gurode was released by the Cowboys on August 29.

The 32-year old Gurode played for Dallas from 2002 until 2010 and made the pro-bowl five consecutive season from 2005 until last season with the Cowboys. He missed a large portion of training camp with the Cowboys after undergoing offseason knee surgery. Gurode was slated to make about 5.5 million dollars this season, so the Cowboys viewed him as economically expendable.

The Patriots could make a significant upgrade to the interior line with the acquisition of Gurode. Before he was moved to center in 2005, Gurode played right guard for the Cowboys. With the injury to current starting right guard Dan Connolly, the Patriots could bring in Gurode to fill in right away. With backup center Ryan Wendell also hurting, Gurode could also fill in right behind Dan Koppen at center.
