The Patriots drafted Justin Rohrwasser in the fifth round out of Marshall, but the rookie has been limited so far this preseason. Rohrwasser made three of five kicks last week in training camp, but hasn’t attempted kicks since.
Folk was with the Patriots for seven games in 2019, making 14-of-17 field goals and all 12 of his extra points.
