Obviously, Belichick will always look for potential upgrades to the team. However, our set is almost always 2 WR's and 2 TE's. That is what we want! The RB can always be a 5th receiver. Woodhead or Faulk would be expected to be our #5 receiving option. ============================== Yes, we need a viable option if Welker or Faulk is injured. Edelman did OK in that role last year. Slater could be used for a few reps a game if needed. ============================== So, how important are the roles of Ochocinco and Price? If I had my way, we wouldn't see either of them on the field much. After all, I would want us to run more, and five targets for Brady is plenty, although an occasional addition WR receiver target is fine (Edleman or Slater or Ochocinco or Price). =============================== BOTTOM LINE In some game plans, Ochocinco is indeed useful. He is also 2012 insurance.
