The New England Patriots have looked like a team in flux over the past few months. Players come in, players get cut, and some get hurt. Either way, it appears as if the New England Patriots are concerned with their passing game.
Wait a minute. Isn’t Tom Brady still the quarterback in New England?
Brady is still at the helm of the pats’ pass offense, but he doesn’t seem the same this season. It could be because he is on his backside more often than usual. You can thank the New York Giants for providing that blueprint.
I am not saying that Brady is declining. He still has a few great years ahead of him. This should be one of those years. And while the Patriots are averaging 26 points per game early in the 2012 NFL season, it is the ground game that has looked more impressive thus far.
And now, with one of the team’s two uber-tight ends in Aaron Hernandez out for the next 4-6 weeks, the Patriots are making more moves.
First, they brought back Deion Branch, who they cut right before the...

Wide receiver Deion Branch has re-signed with the New England Patriots, the Boston Globe reported Tuesday. Branch was one of the Patriots' final cuts during the preseason, but his name was never removed from his Patriots locker, which is right next to Tom Brady's. The move comes two days after the loss of tight end Aaron Hernandez, who could be out up to four weeks...
Kellen Winslow's physical with the Patriots a couple of weeks ago appears to be much more than a formality. New England could be on the verge of adding the free-agent tight end now that Aaron Hernandez is sidelined.
ESPN.com reports that Winslow has inked a one-year deal with the Patriots. Other reports have surfaced stating that a deal is not done yet, but that the Patriots...

The New England Patriots had a very busy Tuesday when it came to roster moves, one of which included signing seven year veteran and former pro-bowler Kellen Winslow Jr. Winslow, the sixth overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft, has played for the Cleveland Browns, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Seattle Seahawks, although he never [...]
The New England Patriots have released tight end Kellen Winslow after just one game.
The veteran of eight full seasons was cut on Thursday after catching one pass for 12 yards in last Sunday night's 31-30 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. The Patriots signed him after tight end Aaron Hernandez suffered a right ankle injury the previous week. Hernandez missed that game and did not...
Deion Branch is back in New England, and the Patriots are excited to get the reliable No. 84 back on the field. After being a last-minute cut during roster trim downs on August 31, Branch's locker in the Patriots locker room has remained in tact with the expectation being that he'd find his way back onto the roster. Well, on Wednesday, he did just that. Unlike Kellen Winslow...
It Is What It Is » In Focus: What Kellen Winslow’s addition means for Patriots’ offense:
Branch caught five touchdowns from Tom Brady last season, pricing a consistent option anywhere on the field.
It seems that the Patriots have found a part-time solution for the absence of Aaron Hernandez in the offense. According to The Boston Globe, New England has re-signed WR Deion Branch after cutting him in the pre-season. There are currently no details as to the numbers involved...
The New England Patriots signed tight end Kellen Winslow, wide receiver Deion Branch and linebacker Niko Koutouvides.
Branch, 33, caught 51 passes for 702 yards and five touchdowns last season.
For his career, Branch has 502 catches for 6,499 yards and 39 touchdowns.
But he certainly helps. There's been a lot of speculation as to what Winslow's role will be with the Patriots. Could the Patriots go back to predominantly playing a two tight end set?With Winslow just arriving, it's hard to imagine that he'll be well enough versed in the offense to allow the Pats to do that. Though we have seen players come right in and contribute...
Wide receiver Deion Branch is back with the New England Patriots.
Branch signed with the Patriots on Tuesday, rejoining the team that cut him three weeks ago, according to the NFL.com.
Branch should have no trouble fitting back into the Patriots offense after playing six of his 11 NFL seasons with the team. Branch and Tom Brady hooked up on 51 receptions for 702 yards and five...
