Early Life and Education

Sebastian Vollmer was born on July 10, 1984 in Kaarst, West Germany. As a teenager, he attended Quirinus Gymnasium in Neuss.

Junior Career

Vollmer started playing American football at the age of 14. In Germany, he played for the Düsseldorf Panther, and helped lead the team to two national Junior Bowl victories. After playing in the 2003 Global Junior Championships in San Diego, California, Vollmer was recruited by college coaches.

Collegiate Career

For college, Vollmer elected to attend the University of Houston, where he played for the Cougars football team. After redshirting as a freshman in 2004, he made eight appearances as a reserve tight end in 2005. However, due to back surgery, Vollmer eventually switched to left tackle. As a senior at Houston in 2008, he was named to the First-Team All-Conference USA.

New England Patriots

In the 2009 NFL Draft, Vollmer was chosen by the New England Patriots in the second round with the 58th overall pick. He made his NFL debut in the Patriots' season opener, and made his first start at left tackle in the team's record-setting 59-0 victory against the Tennessee Titans in Week 6. The Patriots made it to the playoffs, where they fell to the Baltimore Ravens. In 2010, Vollmer started all 16 regular-season games for the Patriots at right tackle. He was named to the AP All-Pro second team, and earned a Madden Most Valuable Protectors Award as part of the Patriots' offensive line. Vollmer had a spotty season in 2011 as he missed significant playing time due to a number of injuries. The Patriots made it to Super Bowl XLVI, but lost to the New York Giants. In 2012, Vollmer played and started in all but one game of the regular season. He subsequently became a free agent. In March of 2013, Vollmer signed a new, four-year contract with the Patriots.

Vollmer began his new Patriots contract inauspiciously, as a broken right leg ended his 2013 season in late October. He came back strong in the 2014 season, playing and starting in all but one regular-season game. In the postseason, Vollmer helped the Patriots win Super Bowl XLIX over the Seattle Seahawks. The team subsequently had a promising start to the 2015 season, winning the first ten games. However, various injuries took their toll on the Patriots, and Vollmer was moved back to left tackle. In 2016, he was placed on the PUP list while simultaneously recovering from shoulder surgery and dealing with a hip injury, causing him to miss the entirety of the regular season. Luckily, Vollmer was activated in time for Super Bowl LI, in which he helped the Patriots defeat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in overtime. A month after the victory, he was released by the team.
