The New England Patriots have won yet another Super Bowl title, while the AFC East powerhouse has now won three of the last five and two of the last three NFL championships. Nonetheless, it does not seem as though the Patriots will be slowing down any time soon with yet another NFL campaign now looming.
According to Mike Reiss of ESPN, the Patriots will be gearing up to sport a potent offensive attack come 2019-20 while adding some depth to the team’s wide receiver corps.
“Similar to 2007, when they traded for Randy Moss and Wes Welker, New England will bring in a few receivers following a season in which they were limited at the position,” writes Reiss. “Whether that’s early in the draft, in free agency or via trade, the cupboard will be well-stocked.”
With Patriots quarterback Tom Brady still hitting throws all over the field, providing the future Hall of Fame signal caller with some more weapons almost seems illegal at this point. Not only do the Patriots already have a talented wide receiver group, led by Super Bowl 53 MVP Julian Edelman, but the AFC East franchise also has quite the loaded backfield as well, with a litany of running backs currently on call.
However, it is also worth noting that All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski could be hanging up his cleats with yet another title officially under his belt. Although this would be a major loss for New England, it appears as though the franchise could replace “Gronk” with a few wideouts.
