The New England Patriots have announced the retaining of an offensive lineman.
Per Ian Rapoport, the team has announced that they have placed a fifth-round tender on Jermaine Eluemunor.
The #Patriots are giving OL Jermaine Eluemunor the original round draft RFA tender, source said. That’s a fifth rounder tender from NE, who traded for him last year.

Eluemunor, 25, was selected by the Baltimore Ravens in the fifth-round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
The Texas A&M alum has played in 27 games and started three. Eluemunor however, made little to no impact for the Patriots this past season after the team traded a fourth-round pick.
The legal tampering period is underway and free agency begins on March 18.
