An undrafted free agent, Sudfeld lit up training camp and the preseason with a number of difficult catches. Nicknames like "Studfeld" and "Baby Gronk" emerged. He was expected to play a big role in the Patriots' offense, but he disappeared when the season started. New England gave him just eight snaps against Atlanta on Sunday night.
Sudfeld is the latest player in this rivalry to change sides. It seemed for a while that both Belichick and Ryan would grab any leftover player from the other team even when it didn't make sense.
