Patrice René says he discussed with seven or eight training, including Giants of New York, the Panthers of Carolina, the Chargers from Los Angeles, Raiders from Las Vegas, Dolphins of Miami and the Colts d’Indianapolis.

In the event of the scenario where the doors of the NFL are closed twice for him, he already has a plan B: the Canadian Football League. The Blue Bombers of Winnipeg bet on him during the 2021 auction, selecting him in the third round, at the 21e rang.

A family moment

The footballer left his hometown at the age of 15 to play high school in Virginia. He later made the jump to the University of North Carolina in 2016 before concluding his college career last fall at the University Rutgersin New Jersey.

Despite everything, the main interested party has not forgotten where he comes from. For this reason, it was unthinkable for Patrice René to experience the NFL draft elsewhere than in Ottawa. He will be accompanied by his parents, his three brothers and his sister.
