Wynn was the Patriots first-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and has been tasked with protecting the blindsides of Tom Brady, Cam Newton, and Mac Jones. It was a tough task but overall he has done a solid job for New England.

The Patriots picked up Wynn’s fifth-year option ahead of this season showing that they have been pleased with the tackle’s performance. The same can’t be said for N’Keal Harry.

While Wynn has yet to get a new contract, he isn’t worried about that as the regular season inches closer.

“I ain’t worried about no contract right now,” Wynn told the media. “I’m focused on being the best player I can be for the team so we can move forward to the season…That’ll come when it comes.”

Wynn joined Harry as well as Matthew Judon in skipping out on voluntary workouts. All three players are now present at mandatory mini-camp. Wynn was asked about skipping out on OTA’s and he had a simple answer when speaking to the media.

“It’s [voluntary],” Wynn said. “I was working.”

So far at mini-camp, Wynn has been playing on the opposite side of the offensive line. The left tackle has swapped over to the right side of the line.

Wynn appears to be okay with the change when speaking to the media.

“It’s the same position, just different side,” Wynn said before being asked if he liked the new spot. “Do I like the change? It’s wherever they need me, player.”

The offensive tackle also said that he was aware of the possible switch ahead of mini-camp so while the move might be a surprise to fans, it wasn’t to him. Bill Belichick said that the offseason is a time for building depth on the roster.

“We build our depth in training camp and in the spring and we will see what we need in the fall,” Belichick said. “I don’t know.”
