With Danny Amendola opting to restructure his contract in order to stay with the team, "The Brady Bunch" for the 2016 is officially in place. And (crosses fingers) it appears as if TB12 will not be devoid of weapons to throw those sexy spirals to.
WR1: Everyone knows the buck starts and stops with Edelman. Not only is he Brady's most trusted receiver (sorry Gronk), but he's also got arguably the biggest set of balls and most drive out of anyone on the roster. He's a slot guy, but in the Pats offense, he is deadly.
WR2: New guy Chris Hogan fits nicely into the role of #2 option, assuming he can pick up the offense in a timely fashion. Its not like Rex Ryan is running a complex offensive scheme in Buffalo, hopefully it doesn't take Hogan too long. He projects as a guy who can move from the slot to the outside to blocker.
WR3: The ying to Edelmans yang, Amendola has restructured his contract for the second straight year to stay with the team, making it clear that he wants another ring more than anything. Amendola is a WR3 with upside in the Pats offense, trusted, shifty, good under pressure and can return punts.
Backup stable: DeAndre Carter, Aaron Dobson, Nate Washington, Keshawn Martin and Chris Harper make up a stable of talented reserves in the case that anyone may get injured or need rest during the season. Although none of these guys are roster locks, they will be on the practice squad and at the very least be ready when their name is called. Of this group I have the most faith in Martin and Washington to make an impact this season.
Rookie class: Both Malcolm Mitchell and Devin Lucien will have a chance to make the team. In fact, Mitchell is a roster lock, and both guys are over 6 feet tall, if they both work out it would make the Pats incredibly formidable. I have faith that Mitchell will make an impact this season, while it will most likely take Lucien time to learn the Pats offensive schemes.
Couple this group of wide outs with Gronk and Bennett and the Pats look mighty deadly on paper. Revenge tour round 2 can not come soon enough.
