Dynasty Watch: Patriots Sign RB George Winn

George Winn in action

via Patriots Sign Rookie Running Back George Winn | New England Patriots |

The Patriots signed rookie running back George Winn on Monday. The Houston Texans, who signed Winn after the draft, released him late last month during organized team activities.

Winn, who went undrafted out of Cincinnati, ran for 1,334 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2012 — his only full season as the starting tailback. He was also recruited to Cincinnati by now-Notre Dame coach and Bill Belichick’s close companion Brian Kelly, who just so happened to be at Patriots minicamp last week.

It would also appear that Winn was the mysterious No. 35 who was spotted working out for the Patriots during the minicamp as well. He will compete with Brandon BoldenLeGarrett Blount and Leon Washington for a spot on the Patriots’ final 53-man roster in training camp.

Well well well, what do we have here?  It looks like one of the most underrated running backs in the 2013 NFL Draft got signed by one of the smartest teams in the NFL.  In case you missed it, George Winn was arguably the most explosive runner in college football last year.  Yes, the Patriots have Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen, but do any of those other running backs seem insurmountable?  A recap of Winn’s competition:

Brandon Bolden:  Missed all of offseason workouts with foot injury.  Also had four game suspension for substance abuse last season.

LaGarrett Blount:  Fell out of favor in Tampa Bay for a reportedly lack of work ethic and habitual tardiness.  I bet that’ll fly in New England!

Leon Washington:   A 31 year old return specialist.

If you love #WINNing in your dynasty league, you’ll keep an eye on George.
