According to ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss, “Siliga opened 2015 as the team’s starting nose tackle, but finished the year fourth on the depth chart behind Malcom Brown, Alan Branch and Akiem Hicks. The turning point in his season came in an Oct. 18 game against the Colts when he struggled at times against the run, which is his forte.”
Siliga took to Instagram to thank the Patriots organization and their fans for the last two seasons.

First off I would like to thank Mr. Kraft for the opportunity to play in New England. It was a pleasure playing for such a great organization! I will always have the up most respect for the New England #Patriots. I Was so blessed to have won Super Bowl XLIX with some great men and spend 3 fantastic years in the Boro! Thank you Patriots for showing me how it gets done! Will always have love for coach Belichick and Matty P and the rest of the coaching staff. Excited for the next journey of Free Agency on March 9 :..
