As teams around the NFL were adding what they hope will be important cogs in their lineup during the first round of the NFL Draft, a key veteran cog in the New England Patriots lineup was eager to get back on the field.

Center David Andrews, who missed the 2019 season with blood clots, took to Instagram to express his excitement at returning to the field no matter what games look like when he gets there.

With a short video of Andrews dancing on the sideline, Andrews posted:

“I know 2020 has affected everyone in ways we couldn’t have imagined prior. But with the draft over the next few days a lot of dreams are gonna be realized for a lot of players entering the league. During this time there has been a lot of time for reflection on the past, present and future. As to the future I’m excited that I’ll have the opportunity to play the game I love again. When and whatever the nfl season looks like I’m just thankful that I’ll be able to get back to competing with my teammates and coaches. Go pats”

Andrews, who’ll be 28 when the season begins, has been a starter all four years he’s played in the league.
