The New England Patriots just recently signed a set of undrafted twins. A wideout from Arkansas, Cody Hollister, and a tight end from Wyoming, Jacob Hollister. Already word is going around, whether jokingly or real, about how the Patriots might use these two to somehow bend or even break the rules. Maybe Bill Belichick in all his digging has found another loophole in the rules that he can exploit by utilizing these twins.
Let’s see what Twitter was chirping about on this interesting signing by the Patriots.

100% chance Belicheck is planning to get extra roster spot by having both twins secretly rotate in under same name. https://t.co/D5gUefcbob

I would love it if the @Patriots sign the other McCourty. Then they can go down in history as winning a SB with 2 sets of twins.

Biggest news of the day: The Patriots have signed twins Jacob and Cody Hollister. Both UDFAs. One a receiver, one a tight end. That's wild.

Yeah Cheats! @Patriots just signed twins, creating many exciting possibilities for Belichick to pull the old Switcheroo!

What does Belichick have up his sleeve? Nobody knows. Because he doesn't have any. Because he cuts them all off. This is what makes him Belichick. Always thinking. Always planning. No days off. Although this all could be just smoke and mirrors. To keep the other 31 teams off of the scent. And keep the Patriots still a couple steps ahead. I guess we are just going to have to wait to find out.
