Dan Koppen had been the Patriots’ starting center for years, but an ankle injury ended his 2011 season week 1. He resigned with the Patriots and is calling himself 100%, but the Boston Globe says it’s currently Connolly’s job to lose. Connolly is a pretty mediocre player ranking 27th out of 35 eligible centers on ProFootballFocus last year, but Koppen is 33 in September and coming off of a major injury. The two will duke it out in Training Camp and the victor will probably be the weak link on a talented offensive line that returns 3 other starters and inserts 2011 1st round pick Nate Solder in the lineup for the retired Matt Light.
