 Cheap Customized New England Patriots Jerseys ,  There is only about a week and a half remaining until the Patriots kick off their 2018 season against the Texans at Gillette Stadium, and it doesn’t look like the receiving issues are going to be getting any better before that. I’ve been searching everywhere to try and find some kind of sign that the receiving core will be OK to begin the season. I’ve been trying to find somebody, anybody, who believes the complete lack of depth at the position isn’t going to significantly hinder the Pats, but I haven’t had any luck. There’s just no way of sugarcoating it. New England’s receiving core is completely and totally depleted.To recap this offseason 鈥?Julian Edelman was suspended for four games, Danny Amendola left for Miami, Brandin Cooks was traded to the Rams, veterans Kenny Britt and Jordan Matthews were both released, as was third-year player Malcolm Mitchell (whose future in New England at one point looked to be incredibly bright).And last but not least, Eric Decker, the one saving grace who was going to miraculously hold this core together until Edelman returns in Week 5, suddenly decided to retire from the NFL after being a Patriot for three weeks. I don’t want to come off as disrespectful to Decker Cheap Sony Michel Jersey , who is making the decision he believes is best for himself and his family, but man 鈥?the timing could not have been worse.It’s gotten to the point where I’m now finding myself hoping against hope that the Patriots sign Dez Bryant to a one-year deal, just for the sake of having bodies of some kind on the field to catch passes. But that’s not going to happen, and the Patriots are going to take the field in Foxborough next week with Chris Hogan, Cordarrelle Patterson, and Phillip Dorsett as their top three receivers. That will be 鈥?something.Unsure of where else to go, I turned to a recent Bill Belichick press conference, hoping he would say something to make me feel a little better about this situation. But of course, everything he said about it was very 鈥?Belichick.“We all have a lot of work to do; we have a lot to prove at every position,” Belichick said via “None of us have done anything this year in the 2018 season, so I think we’re all in the same boat on that one, coaches Cheap Josh Gordon Jersey , players. Whatever position you want to look at, we all have a long way to go.”It’s officially true. I have absolutely zero idea what to expect out of the first four games of this season. This is going to be very interesting.Get to know the three newest members of the Patriots’ offense Yesterday was a busy day in Foxboro. First, the New England Patriots and starting right guard Shaq Mason agreed to a five-year, $50 million contract extension. Then, the team saw running back Sony Michel and right tackle Marcus Cannon return to practice. And finally, three new players were brought on board to fill the three vacant spots on the team. Let’s take a closer look at the trio.RB Kenneth FarrowAfter a productive career at Houston, Kenneth Farrow went undrafted in 2016. The then-San Diego Chargers picked him up as a free agent, and he was able to make the team as a reserve back. Injuries pushed Farrow up the depth chart and led to the versatile back appearing in 13 of the Chargers’ games during his rookie year. Before seeing his season end with a shoulder injury in December, he amassed 73 touches for 262 yards. The 5’9, 220 lbs back was unable to bounce back from the injury in 2017 spent all of it on injured reserve as well. In April, the Chargers elected to release Farrow.WR K.J. MayeK.J. Maye also went unselected during the 2016 NFL draft and was picked up by the New York Giants as a free agent. However, he was unable to stick with the team and was on the open market from August to December 2016 , when the Tennessee Titans added him to their practice squad. The Titans ultimately signed the 5’8, 190 lbs wideout to a futures contract after his rookie year, but decided to waive him shortly afterwards – paving his way to joining the Patriots for the first time. Maye spent 2017’s training camp with the defending world champions but failed to make the roster and subsequently spent the entire season out of football. Now, he is back in Foxboro.RB Khalfani MuhammadAs opposed to Farrow and Maye, Khalfani Muhammad heard his name called on draft day: he was picked by the Tennessee Titans in the seventh round last year. The Cal product started his rookie season on the Titans’ practice squad before getting promoted to their active roster in late December. The 5’7, 175 lbs running back did not see any in-game action, though, and was released during the offseason. Muhammad remained on the open market since April, and now joins New England’s backfield.Considering their past production and that they joined the Patriots this late during the process, none of the three players should be expected to make New England’s 53-man roster or even their practice squad. However, they offer depth at crucial positions heading into the final week of the preseason and could potentially turn into emergency in-season call-ups in case of injury.
