Mason will resume his right guard position in 2019." Patriots AnalysisPatriots Player ProfilesPatriots Offseason CoverageNew England Patriots 2019 roster breakdown: #69 OG Shaq MasonNew ,2commentsMake no mistake, Mason is one of the NFL’s best guards.EDTThe New England Patriots, who are currently in their middle of their 2019 training camp, have 90 players on their active roster at the moment. However, only 53 of them will be able to survive the cutdowns on August 31 and ultimately make the team. Over the course of the summer, we will take a look at the players fighting for those spots to find out who has the best chances of helping the Patriots defend their Super Bowl title.Today, the series continues with New England’s starting right guard.Name: Shaq MasonPosition: GuardJersey number: 69Opening day age: 26Experience: 4Size: 6’1, 310 lbs.2018 review: Despite Shaq Mason’s 2017 season ending on a low note — he was beaten for a strip-sack during the Patriots’ Super Bowl loss — the team expressed confidence in the former fourth round draft pick’s abilities to bounce back: in August, Mason and the Patriots agreed to a five-year, $50 million contract extension that will keep him with the team through the 2023 season. The investment started to pay off right away.Mason was outstanding in 2018 as he took another step forward and can now call himself one of the truly elite interior offensive lineman in the NFL. Not only was he his usual terrific self as a run blocker —one that possess a rare blend of power and agility — he also improved even further as a pass protector and surrendered just 14.5 quarterback disruptions: Mason was responsible for only 1.5 sacks as well as 6 hits and 7 hurries.The Georgia Tech product was not just productive, he also again proved himself a reliable and durable presence along the Patriots’ offensive line. While he missed two regular season games — weeks nine and ten against the Green Bay Packers and Tennessee Titans — because of a calf injury, he rarely left the field when healthy. As a result, Pro Football Focus’ top rated guard finished the regular season with a playing time share of 85.2% (953 of 1,119).Mason’s outstanding season continued into the playoffs: playing 249 of a possible 253 offensive snaps (98.8%), he was an integral part of an offensive line that surrendered just 15 quarterback pressures — 1 hit and 3 hurries coming from Mason’s side — and helped New England average 161.7 rushing yards over its three postseason contests. Without the right guard being on top of his game against the best competition in the NFL, this would not have been possible.Despite seeing regular snaps against such talented defensive linemen as Brandon Mebane (Los Angeles Chargers), Chris Jones (Kansas City Chiefs) and Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh (Los Angeles Rams), Mason held his ground time and again en route to earning his second Super Bowl ring. And on top of it all Rex Burkhead Jersey , he also saw regular action in the kicking game as well: he played a combined 87 snaps (of 545; 16.0%) as a protector on field goal and extra point attempts.All in all, Shaq Mason’s 2018 campaign and the Patriots’ decision to lock him up on a multi-year deal early can therefore both be classified as outstanding. 2019 preview: Entering the first true year of his contract extension, Mason is set to hit the Patriots’ books with a salary cap hit of $7.28 million — the fifth highest on the team and reflective of his status as one of its core members and a roster lock. As such, the soon-to-be 26-year-old will resume his role as New England’s starting right guard and rarely leave the field: expect Mason’s playing time to be close to 100% on a weekly basis.Furthermore, the fifth-year man is also again projected to play his position on a high level. No matter if it is paving the way for the team’s rushing attack or protecting quarterback Tom Brady from inside pressure, Mason will be ready and productive — anything else would be a major surprise, especially considering that the entire right side of the line also stayed intact over the course of the offseason. Conditions are perfect for Mason to have another good season. In a Super Bowl snoozer featuring a single touchdown by victorious New England and the high-scoring, newfangled, all-the-rage Los Angeles Rams managing a measly three points, the MVP trophy went to Patriots receiver Julian Edelman.Where’s the love for the defense?Sure, Edelman caught 10 passes for 141 yards, including two grabs on the drive that ended with rookie running back Sony Michel plowing into the end zone with the game’s lone touchdown.Yet, if there ever was a case for another defensive MVP like Von Miller in Super Bowl 50, this was it.Of 54 MVPs (Cowboys DT Randy White and DE Harvey Martin shared the honors in 1978), 42 have been offensive players, 11 were defenders and one was a special teamer (Desmond Howard in 1997).There were plenty of worthy candidates from the Patriots defense that hit Goff 16 times, collected four sacks, broke up eight passes and picked off another.Two defenders really stood out:—Jason McCourty raced across the field to break up a would-be touchdown toss to Brandin Cooks Womens Donald Trump Jersey , who was wide open — but … had … to … wait … forever … for Jared Goff’s rainbow pass that was knocked away just as it arrived.—Stephon Gilmore intercepted Goff’s pass in front of his end zone with 4:17 remaining on a pass intended for Cooks to seal the sixth title for Tom Brady, who outplayed Goff, and Bill Belichick, who outsmarted Sean McVay.Calais Campbell , for one, insists Gilmore was the real MVP of SB53 after forcing a fumble, intercepting a pass, breaking up three other throws and collecting five tackles.“The offense only scores 13 points and they give MVP to Edelman but the D only gives up 3 points and Gilmore” does all of that, Campbell complained on social media. “Smh no respect for the masterpiece on defense.”The Rams may very well represent the future with their 33-year-old coach and 24-year-old quarterback, but the 66-year-old coach and his 41-year-old QB still reign supreme in 2019 — thanks again to a defense that allowed the duo to survive another masterful game plan by Rams defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.Brady’s worst Super Bowl — three scores in 11 drives that didn’t end in kneel-downs — also was his easiest — a 10-point margin of victory was his highest ever.McVay and Goff both accepted the blame for a miserable showing in which Rams never adjusted to New England’s zone defense and aggressive D-line and managed to score just once in a dozen drives, the first eight of which ended in punts.When it was over, the high-flying Rams, who led the NFC in scoring with a 33-point average, had nine punts, an interception, a field goal and a missed field goal to show for all that firepower that had so many NFL teams trying to find the next Sean McVay.After the red-white-and-blue confetti was cleaned up with leaf blowers at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Rams quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor became the third assistant hired off McVay’s staff. He was hired as head coach the Cincinnati Bengals. At 35, Taylor becomes the second-youngest head coach in the NFL behind his former boss.The Dolphins hired Brian Flores , the Patriots linebackers coach and de facto defensive play-caller who has cut his teeth in Foxborough since 2004.With those two hires, the coaching carousel has eight new head coaches, six of them with offensive roots, as owners seek the next McVay or Kyle Shanahan to keep up with all this innovative run-pass optioning, jet-sweeping, scoreboard-busting offenses.The kind that didn’t show up in this Super Bowl.Vic Fangio, who spearheaded Chicago’s dominant defense, was the only other defensive assistant hired as a head coach this cycle, replacing Vance Joseph in Denver.The other jobs all went to offensive minds promising innovation in this age of change.The Packers hired Matt LeFleur, who was McVay’s offensive coordinator in 2017. The Cardinals dipped into the college ranks to hire Kliff Kingsbury, who tutored MVP Patrick Mahomes at Texas Tech.The Cleveland Browns promoted offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens, who worked wonders with Baker Mayfield after his midseason promotion from running backs coach. The Jets hired Adam Gase, Peyton Manning’s former OC who wore out his welcome in Miami, and the Buccaneers brought Bruce Arians and his deep offensive roots out of retirement.Miami fans should be ecstatic about the arrival of Flores, 37, after watching him help their AFC East rival win yet another Super Bowl title.Saints fans didn’t pay much mind to Super Bowl 53.Thousands of New Orleans football fans partied in the French Quarter while the Rams and Patriots were trudging into the fourth quarter tied at 3.A “Boycott Bowl” festival and a jazz funeral procession putting the football season to rest encapsulated how New Orleans residents felt about the Super Bowl, and even the city’s police department got in on the Times-Picayune reports the New Orleans Police Department made a spoof video showing their investigation into the infamous “no-call” in the NFC championship that the Saints lost to the Rams.The newspaper’s nearly blank front page also summarized what those in the Big Easy thought of the Patriots’ win over the Rams on Sunday: “Super Bowl? What Super Bowl?”
