New England Patriots

Foxboro, MA, Oct25, 2020 - Patriots linebacker Lawrence Guy pulls down 49er QB Jimmy Garoppolo for a loss in the first half. Coming in on the play is Pats Ja'Whaun Bentley on the right. The New England Patriots vs. the San Francisco 49ers at Gillette Stadium.

When Lawrence Guy re-signed with the Patriots on March 24, the move seemingly capped a masterful primary free agency period by the Patriots. Guy’s return not only added talent to the reassembled front seven unit, but he also brings a veteran presence who understands the culture the team wants in the locker room in Foxborough.

Speaking with the media on Thursday for the first time since the end of last season, Guy made it clear he doesn’t think the team should simply forget their disappointing 7-9 finish last year. Instead, he believes the best course of action is to learn from their mistakes.

“To build off last year – and we we had some troubles, we had some problems with stopping certain things – but all you can do is figure out what was happening and fix it,” he explained. “Everybody wants to improve. And that’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to improve on every little thing.”

“You want to learn from your failures,” Guy continued. “And that’s what we’re doing. We struggled at certain things and now we have to pick that up and realize how we get better. What do we need to get better?”
