Clarity in the New England Passing Game?
Updated: Aug 7, 2018
There has been a ton of news out of Foxborough lately regarding the New England Patriots wide receiving corps. They released Jordan Matthews. They signed Eric Decker. Now, they have released Wide Receiver Malcolm Mitchell. Many reports say that Cordarelle Patterson has been impressing in practice and now the addition of Eric Decker (and a lingering knee injury) has made Mitchell an expendable piece. Surprisingly, despite only signing with the team four days ago, Eric Decker is already listed ahead of Kenny Britt on the team's official depth chart. There's a lot to pay attention to over these next few weeks of pre-season, but it appears for the moment that Eric Decker and Chris Hogan are the favorites to start in Week 1 while Julian Edelman serves his suspension.
