Riley Reiff - OT

Team for 2023: New England Patriots

When Riley Reiff parted with the Vikings in 2021 at the age of 32, some didn't know much longer the veteran offensive lineman was going to continue his career in the NFL.

Well, now Reiff is 34-years-old, and he's still attempting to keep a job in the league. After signing with the Patriots this offseason, the former Minnesota blocker is the favorite to open up the 2023 campaign as New England's starting right tackle.

Reiff spent a grand total of four seasons with the Vikings, and during this time, he started 58 games in purple and gold. In these four years, he was Minnesota's starting left tackle, but he's also spent a decent portion of his career lined up as a right tackle.


The Patriots are Reiff's third stop since his departure from the Vikings, with his other stints coming with the Cincinnati Bengals (in 2021) and the Chicago Bears (2022).

Will New England end up being the final stop of his career?
