Free agent Dan Connolly still hasn't found a home.
He had a visit with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in early April but left with out a contract offer. And with the NFL draft this week, you can expect his status to remain unchanged until the draft is over and all the rookie free agents have signed.
But the available veteran offensive lineman pool is slowly drying up.
C Stefen Wisniewski's deal with the Jaguars is one year at $2.5 million, source says.

Wisniewski was a name that many teams were looking at in the affordable offensive lineman category that Connolly is in. If a team doesn't address its line in the draft they could look to Connolly as easy and cheap way to shore up the line for next season.
But it does appear the Patriots still have an interest in bringing him back. You can expect the guard position to be one the Patriots address heavily in this weeks draft but that wouldn't necessarily close the door on Connolly coming back. Belichick loves his versatile veterans and Connolly is just that. Having played every offensive line position during his time with the Patriots.
If they no longer have need for him on the offensive line, they could always bring him back and give him a shot at kick returner.
