the Patriots have more options to fill Edelman’s starting role than ever before.
He set career highs the following season after hauling in 49 catches for 685 yards and five touchdowns, but he fell off that pace in 2016. Though the Seahawks are still relatively thin at wideout — Baldwin and Tyler Lockett are the only players on the roster to have gained more than 271 receiving yards in a season as pros — they decided to jettison a fan favorite.
The real win for the Jets is getting a second-round pick to continue to rebuild the team from scratch while Leonard Williams and Muhammad Wilkerson pick up the slack on the defensive line.
But Kearse can immediately contribute to the Jets and step up in a way that the Seahawks depth chart often didn’t allow him to.
In 2017, the Patriots have more options to fill Edelman’s starting role than ever before. Belichick and his New England staff have been deliberate in their quest to surround Brady with as much talent as possible as his career winds down. The team traded the 32nd pick of this year’s NFL draft to New Orleans in exchange for playmaking wideout Brandin Cooks. He’ll be option 1a on a suddenly Cheap Authentic Soccer Jerseys stacked receiving depth chart.
The speedy Cooks has lived up to the expectations placed on him after being the 20th overall pick in the 2014 draft. He’s recorded more than 2,300 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns in his last two seasons with the Saints, and somehow found a way to upgrade from Drew Brees after heading north to Foxborough. He’s more of a deep threat than Edelman was (15 yards per catch last season), but can also fill out a Cheap Basketball Jerseys UK route tree as needed with the Patriots.
