These five players will, unfairly or not be under the most pressure to produce or find themselves moving on from the team.
The Patriots added some much-needed youth into the wide receiver core, by selecting Malcolm Mitchell and Devin Lucien in the NFL Draft.
Boyd would immediately mesh with the Patriots offense. He has the ability to run crisp routes, get immediate separation and stretch the field horizontally
Miller ran a 4.40 in the 40 as well as led all WRs in the all-important 3-Cone Drill with a superb time of 6.65. He also had the best times in the 20-yard Shuttle and the 60-yard Shuttle.
Leonte Carroo from Rutgers could be the next player to keep the Scarlet Knights pipeline to New England alive. He’s been a very consistent productive receiver for the past three seasons in New Jersey where he’s averaged over 20 yards per reception the last two seasons
The Patriots offered RFA Chris Hogan a 3-year offer for $12 million-dollars with a 2016 cap hit of $5.5 million which will make it very difficult for the Buffalo Bills to match. Hogan has signed his offer sheet and the Bills have five days to match.
Now the receiver position as we mentioned a month ago is even in a deeper state of need of an overhaul. With the contract situation of Danny Amendola still needing to be looked at, and his own roster position not a given yet, the need for youth, speed and size just got even more important.
In the second preseason game against New Orleans he was targeted nine times and caught eight for 68 yards. Then came the injury.
Fortunately there was some good news and it looks like neither Aaron Dobson or Danny Amendola suffered any significant injuries Monday night.
The Buffalo Bills did not suffer any letdown after their loss to the Patriots, as they traveled to south Florida and pummeled Miami, 41-14, to advance to 2-1. While three games is too soon to to reach a definitive conclusion, it appears that Buffalo has finally found a quarterback. Tyrod Taylor is completing 75% of his passes with seven touchdown passes to three interceptions, a passer rating of 116.1, and is also averaging 5.6 yards a carry. Taylor was able to stretch the defense with deep, accurate throws; against Miami he was 21-29 for 277 yards with three touchdowns, no picks, and no sacks. Tight end Charles Clay (5 catches for 82 yards and a TD at Miami) has been a nice pickup, and it is worth noting that the Bills were able to score those 41 points without LeSean McCoy.
Inconsistent Aaron Dobson provides Patriots offensive help in late shootout win over Bills.
One of the benefits of winning the Super Bowl is being able to open the next season in front of the home crowd on national television and for a player who’s in a contract season, things couldn’t have worked out better for wide receiver Aaron Dobson.
Aaron Dobson made a strong case for himself to earn a spot on New England’s 53-man roster for 2015 after his performance Thursday night.
Thursday night saw the Patriots play their final preseason game, which saw some players make a little noise while others fell a little flat. Here’s a quick rundown of three from each end of the spectrum that stood out.
The Patriots saw two of their offensive weapons back on the field during their win over Carolina.
