As the New England Patriots build around Mac Jones, they are looking to surround him with a strong offensive unit. The main area of need has been a wide receiver. They found one within their division, making a trade with the Miami Dolphins to acquire Jones’ newest receiver.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Patriots are acquiring DeVante Parker and a fifth-round pick in this month’s NFL Draft and sending the Dolphins a third-round pick in next year’s draft.

The Patriots have been in need of a wide receiver and now they have one. The 29-year-old Parker tallied 515 receiving yards, 40 catches and two touchdowns in 10 games last season. New England felt comfortable trading such a high draft pick because, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss, they are expecting to receive a compensation pick after losing J.C. Jackson

Bringing in Parker adds depth at the wide-receiver spot but New England still needs to find a true primary receiver. Jakobi Meyers and Kendrick Bourne each had solid seasons, as did tight end Hunter Henry, but the Patriots still need a truly elite wideout for Jones. They could look to the draft for one, as the first round offers plenty of solid options.

The Dolphins have received interest in Parker, who became expendable after the additions of Tyreek Hill and Cedrick Wilson Jr. Those two, Jaylen Waddle and Mike Gesicki give Tua Tagovailoa plenty of options in the passing game.
