Not sure I understand this one. Here is the state of the WR as I see it:
SE = Moss: Obviously not healthy at the end, but check the 2nd Bills game
FL = Tate: Why assume his career is over at age 22?
Slot = Edelman: Keeping the spot warm until Welker is ready
TE2 = Good blocker and showed good rapport with Brady
Not going to include Aiken even though he has shown he can be a reasonable fill-in for injuries in addition to being a ST captain...meaning he is #5 on the depth chart.
So what is missing and how hard will it be to get?
One more WR on the depth chart to serve as the #4 in the first half of the season and then be a situational (red zone?) guy later in the year. That is a 3rd day draft pick or a low-priced vet.
A #1 TE with a top-shelf set of receiving skills. This one is harder. Nobody in the draft is a sure thing. This is an area where the Pats could invest some FA dollars. There is a thread
already, but none of them really float my boat either.
So the only real heavy lifting this year if for a #1 TE. Everything else is either in place or easy to get. Next year you look for the Moss replacement, but luckily there are a slew of candidates in the draft with the Pats sitting on two #1 picks.
Edit: Oops...forgot RB. Time for a Faulk upgrade and McCluster would be ideal for the that. Get him even if you have to use #44.
