Having set their sights on the former tight ends coach of the Cleveland Browns the Patriots are now bringing on board a former Browns assistant to assume the role of their new offensive line coach.

Following their pursuit of former Cleveland Browns tight ends coach T.C. McCartney as a quarterbacks coach, the New England Patriots are reportedly bringing on board Scott Peters, a former Browns assistant coach, to assume the role of their new offensive line coach, according to the Boston Herald’s Andrew Callahan.

Peters began his NFL journey with the Browns in 2020, collaborating closely with Van Pelt over four seasons. His move to New England is aimed at addressing one of the team’s major challenges throughout the 2023 season.

This acquisition indicates the Patriots are empowering Van Pelt to assemble his own offensive coaching team, as reported by the Boston Sports Journal’s Mike Giardi, aiming to avoid a situation akin to Bill O’Brien’s tenure.

The Patriots are demonstrating full support for Van Pelt’s leadership in steering the offense. However, the crucial question remains whether Peters will have the necessary personnel to succeed, a concern highlighted by Adrian Klemm’s coaching of the offensive line last season.

The team faced a litany of challenges including injuries, players operating out of their typical positions, and overall underperformance. Nonetheless, this time around, the Patriots possess both salary cap flexibility and draft resources to address these issues, hoping to pair them with competent coaching staff to guide the way forward.
