It seems there’s only one position on Patriots fans minds right now: wide receiver. Patriots faithful is agonizing over slot receivers, outside receivers, deep threat receivers, Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd, Danny Amendola and countless other options. Whether Welker is back in a Patriots uniform next year or not, New England will no doubt look to acquire a few outside targets for Tom Brady for 2013. On this week’s The Gunslingers, NESN.com’s Luke Hughes and Doug Kyed direct you through all the possibilities the Patriots could face at the wideout position. If Welker doesn’t come back, that could increase the chances of acquiring a big name like Greg Jennings or Mike Wallace. Even if Welker is re-signed, the team could still go after his Texas Tech clone, Amendola. Check out the podcast below to hear Hughes and Kyed also discuss how the Dolphins’ offense may look with Wallace going deep and what the Chiefs should do with their No. 1 overall pick.
