Patriots offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer, who is slated to become an unrestricted free agent March 12, recently underwent knee surgery, according to a report.

Vollmer, a four-year veteran with known back issues, is one of 18 free agents the Patriots have to address this offseason and one of three starters who are possible suitors for the franchise tag, including Aqib Talib and Wes Welker.

News of his surgery, an arthroscopic procedure according to a Herald source, could certainly diminish his ability to command top dollar, especially if the nature of the surgery is because of a serious injury.

If the Patriots were to use the franchise tag on Vollmer, it could cost the team an estimated $9.66 million.
