Ex-Patriots OT Sebastian Vollmer is retiring after missing the 2016 season with hip and shoulder injuries.
Drafted in the second round in 2009, Vollmer went on to start 90 games for the Patriots. He earned second-team All-Pro honors in 2010 at right tackle, won a Super Bowl in 2014, and helped protect Tom Brady for seven seasons. Vollmer is currently enrolled in NFL Broadcast Boot Camp. Last year, the Patriots moved forward with Marcus Cannon as their long-term right tackle starter. May 16 - 3:51 PM

The Detroit Free Press considers the Lions a potential fit for free agent RT Sebastian Vollmer.

Vollmer has ties to GM Bob Quinn from their time with the Patriots. He would give the Lions a veteran fallback for free agent RT Riley Reiff. Vollmer's health status is up in the air after missing all of 2016 and getting released with a failed physical. There's rumblings Vollmer's out of football shape and trending toward retirement.
Mar 4 - 3:19 PM

Patriots released RT Sebastian Vollmer with a failed physical.

Vollmer sat out all of 2016 with hip and shoulder injuries and has now missed 29 games over the past four seasons. There are rumors he's currently out of shape and considering retirement. Vollmer earned a second-team All-Pro nod and won two Super Bowls during his eight-year stay in Foxboro. Marcus Cannon is locked in as New England's starting right tackle.
Mar 3 - 4:46 PM

USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports the Patriots plan to release RT Sebastian Vollmer.

Originally scheduled for free agency, Vollmer's 2016 contract "tolled" to 2017 because he spent all of last season on the reserve/PUP list with hip and shoulder ailments. He is only due a $2.25 million base salary. If Vollmer still wants to play, he would have a significant market due to so many offensive tackle needs around the NFL, and so little talent available in free agency and this year's draft. Vollmer turns 33 in July.
Mar 2 - 12:53 PM

ESPN Boston doesn't expect the Patriots to retain RT Sebastian Vollmer.

Vollmer is done for the season after not getting activated from reserve/PUP. He's been one of the better tackles in the league when healthy, but has missed 29 games the last four years. Once released, Vollmer will likely have to settle for short-term contract offers. He may also decide to hang up the cleats pushing age 33.

Patriots placed RT Sebastian Vollmer (hip, shoulder) on the reserve/PUP list.

Vollmer is expected to miss the entire season, but the Patriots are at least creating the possibility that he could return. Marcus Cannon will fill in for however long Vollmer is sidelined.
Tue, Aug 30, 2016 05:27:00 PM

The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe expects Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer (hip, shoulder) to open the season on the reserve/PUP list.

Vollmer is eligible for reserve/PUP because he's spent all of camp on active/PUP. Leaving him on reserve/PUP makes more sense than I.R. because the Patriots could bring back Vollmer if he's healthy after six games. Vollmer being healthy by that point does sound unlikely, however, based on the latest reports. Marcus Cannon is No. 2 on the Patriots' right tackle depth chart.
Sun, Aug 21, 2016 01:44:00 PM

Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer will reportedly be placed on injured reserve with a nagging hip injury.

It's been a rough morning for the Pats with Dion Lewis slated to undergo a second knee surgery and now Vollmer appearing unlikely to play this season. It's a big blow to an offensive line that struggled to protect Tom Brady in last year's playoffs. Marcus Cannon is a candidate to take over for Vollmer.
Sun, Aug 21, 2016 12:20:00 PM

Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer and T/G Marcus Cannon "don't know their fates," according to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe.

Vollmer is regarded as one of the best tackles in football when healthy, so it would be somewhat surprising if the Pats cut him loose. Of course, we're dealing with Bill Belichick, who is notoriously ruthless in his handling of players perceived to be on the decline. Dumping Cannon seems like a no-brainer following his lackluster play in the postseason. Cutting both would free up $10 million in cap space.
Sun, Feb 28, 2016 09:59:00 AM

The Patriots have ruled out LT Sebastian Vollmer (knee), RE Chandler Jones (toe, abdomen), and LB Dont'a Hightower (knee) for Week 17.

There's a chance the Pats could lose the AFC's No. 1 seed, but they aren't taking any chances with their banged-up players. The decision to deactivate so many key cogs may suggest a willingness to also rest some starters if New England gets up early on Miami. Vollmer and Jones are fully expected to be ready for the playoffs. Hightower is a bit less certain.
Fri, Jan 1, 2016 04:29:00 PM

CSN New England reports Patriots LT Sebastian Vollmer (knee) will likely sit out Week 17, but will return for the postseason.

It's a much needed break for the Patriots, who are just about at the point of no return with injuries. With the Pats having sewn up a first-round bye, Vollmer now has two weeks to rest before returning to action. L'Adrian Waddle or Cameron Fleming will man the blindside in Week 17, increasing the chances Tom Brady gets some rest.
Tue, Dec 29, 2015 04:14:00 PM

The Patriots hope LT Sebastian Vollmer suffered only a sprain Week 16 against the Jets.

The team should know more following a Monday MRI, but the hope is he can return for the playoffs. Vollmer was rolled up from behind on the Patriots' first possession and had to be carted off the field. New England is dangerously thin at tackle.
Mon, Dec 28, 2015 11:30:00 AM

Patriots LT Sebastian Vollmer was forced from New England's Week 16 game against the Jets with a left leg injury, and will not return.

Vollmer got rolled up from behind by multiple players on a Joey Iosefa run. He was carted off the field, and immediately ruled out for the day. Quick rule outs often suggest a serious injury. Vollmer, of course, was filling in for Nate Solder, who is out for the season. He's been replaced by Lions castoff LaAdrian Waddle. It's a big issue for the Pats.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 01:28:00 PM

Patriots LT Sebastian Vollmer (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 11.

Vollmer returned to limited practice this week and looks like he could get cleared for Monday night. The Patriots are also hoping to get RT Marcus Cannon (questionable, toe) and RG Tre' Jackson (questionable, knee) back this week.
Sat, Nov 21, 2015 06:11:00 PM

Patriots LT Sebastian Vollmer exited Week 9 against the Redskins with a head injury.

He is questionable to return. Cameron Fleming will switch over to the left side with Bryan Stork, who was just activated off injured reserve-designated to return Saturday, playing right tackle. The Patriots are ridiculously beat up on the offensive line.
