I really like our roster. The strengths are:

Rb's
O-line
Pass rush
Tight ends
Special teams coverage and Bailey
D-line

Weakness:

Cb depth
Wr depth
Kicker ? We'll see


Overall, this roster is so much better than last year, especially defensively and I think we'll also be improved at QB(better decisions)

@mgteich: Not worried about the WR's and not expecting us to bring anyone outside up to speed anytime soon. In my mind, the TE's...all 3 of them are our WR's too. And with the way we probably want Mac Jones to play...I think James White and our slot guys are gonna see a lot of balls this year....

But I do agree that we need to hope that Agholor stays healthy....if not..I think we bring up Tre Nixon to be the deep decoy...and was Wilkerson picked up yet by anyone?

Wilkerson is still on our PS.

Perry plays the slot. Thats been his role.

Miami is deep at WR - Fuller, Parker, Hurns.Waddle.? Youre likely looking at the next NE slot WR. Plus Perry plays special teams.

So what? We have enough Slot Receivers here already...And (more than) enough Special Teamers too.

Why would BB sign Perry to a 3.3 mil contract just to cut him? The Pats desperately need WRs too.


They need Outside Receivers, and he ain't it...And unless/until Billy & the New Minions find a legit one, then this is a bottom-4 group, again.

Hey Nick,

I get where you're coming from on the WR position, but I think everyone will be surprised. I really like Meyers, think he is going to be great this year. Also like what I've seen so far from Bourne. With Nelson, lets give him some time. He is really fast and could extend the field for our tight ends and our short passing game. Would I like another Wr, yeah, but compared to last year, it's definitely an improvement.

Yes, but we will likely see a lot of 2 TEs lines up and running the ball throwing here and there.

A good slot man is essential for the dink and dunk offense that Brady won Super Bowls with. Didnt Mac kinda do that with Devonta Smith letting him pickup the yac?

Who has really emerged to replace Edelman?
I don't think Edelman can be replaced per se. That said, you're right... no one really has emerged as a slot guy.

But they don't seem to be playing that way. I spent some time looking at Mac's preseason plays, and it seems like the RB checkdown is a big factor. Also the TEs can fill that role to a degree.

I hold out hope for Gunner... but as someone once said, "hope is not a strategy". :p
