Patriots have to make a call on Isaiah Wynn, Sony Michel with fifth-year option deadline nearing

While the 2021 NFL Draft is in the rear-view mirror, teams cannot start sitting back and relax just yet. Undrafted free agents need to get signed — in most cases at least — while the voluntary offseason workout program and rookie minicamp are also either already underway or coming up soon. On top of it all, clubs will also have to make decisions about any first-round picks they might have brought aboard back in the 2018 draft.

Monday, after all, is deadline day for teams to pick up the fifth-year options in their respective rookie deals.
