North Forsyth grad Colby Gossett was signed Monday by the New England Patriots.

North Forsyth grad Colby Gossett was signed Monday by the New England Patriots, just one day after being released by the Arizona Cardinals.

Gossett, who became Forsyth County's first NFL draft pick last year when the Minnesota Vikings selected him in the sixth round of the 2018 draft, is one of two guards on the Patriots' 10-man practice squad.

Gossett, 6-foot-5, 331 pounds, played in five games last year for the Cardinals, starting four. 

Gossett was an All-Sun Belt Conference selection at left guard during his final two years at Appalachian State, from 2016-17.
