Mailbag: Who parties harder, Gronk or Johnny Football?

I’m trying to gauge the Patriots outlook at wide receiver in 2014. My thought is that the team might drop Kenbrell Thompkins as a result of the LaFell signing and Josh Boyce seemingly climbing the depth chart. –Alex from Deerfield, MA That is a very real possibility, but far from a certainty. Kenbrell Thompkins – affectionately known as “KT” by his quarterback – showed...

1. Brandon LaFell Getty Images The Patriots need help at Wide Receiver, and recognized that as one of their needs this off-season.  With a group of younger Wide Receivers, Amendola and Edelman, the Patriots looked to add some more to the unit.  Interestingly enough, the only veteran they decided to bring in was this guy.

Dobson vs. Lafell: Who will be Tom Brady’s next ‘Moss’?

Ever since New England cut ties with Randy Moss back in 2010, the Patriots have been in search for a big bodied deep threat wide receiver. They tried to find one in a few guys: Taylor Price in the 2010 draft, Chad Johnson (or Ochocinco) via free agency in 2011, and Brandon Lloyd in free agency back in 2012. Although all of these receivers didn’t have the same 6’4” height of...

Reloading the Musket - Part 5: Patriots loaded at receiver, but why not take a look?

At the end of last season, the New England Patriots receiving corps looked more like a collection of leftovers from a triage room pick-up game than a roster full of professional athletes.That is not to mean that they aren't professional athletes, but how could one tell otherwise when the only healthy pass catchers on the field for the AFC Title tilt atrocity was a try-hard munchkin...

New England Patriots maintain status quo on offensive line

The New England Patriots have made a number of moves in free agency to shore up the offense (re-signing wide receiver Julian Edelman and signing wide receiver Brandon LaFell) and the defense (signing cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner and reworking the contracts to keep defensive tackles Vince Wilfork and Tommy Kelly).

The New England Patriots found a versatile player in Brandon LaFell. The recently-signed wide receiver didn’t only play outside and in the slot with the Carolina Panthers, he was also a reserve tight end. “If we ever got in a situation in a passing down where something happened to (Panthers tight end) Greg Olsen, (LaFell) could go in and play the Y for us, which meant he either...

Mailbag: Brandon LaFell, Kenny Brit, and which Patriot would win in a fight

Who would you take in a fight out of anyone on the Pats? –Ron Stone from Denver As of now Vince Wilfork is still a Patriot, which is tempting, but I’m assuming this fight isn’t a sumo match. It’s hard to believe Tom Brady will lose at anything. The guy is already the best player and best actor on the team. Still, I’m going to have to go with Chandler Jones. Not only is...
