Breaking News: New England Patriots Confirm In Talk To Sign Top Wide Receiver To Improve Roster

Scott Zolak Wants Patriots To Pursue Top Wide Receiver To Improve Roster.
The Stefon Diggs trade from the Buffalo Bills to the Houston Texans caused waves that reach beyond the two teams to the whole AFC, notably the New England Patriots.

Scott Zolak feels the Patriots’ wide out room is better than the Bills’ after the trade, but still wants New England to chase a No. 1 wideout via trade.

Zolak said he is depending on DeMario Douglas, Kendrick Bourne and K.J. Osborn to be targets in New England but feels the Patriots should surround the QB with an experienced wideout in addition to the three.


“You’re not just done until the draft. You could still pull off trades for players,” Zolak said Wednesday on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s “Zolak and Bertrand” show. “Are the Patriots working that avenue at all? For an experienced receiver to come in and help any quarterback who’s going to play. I don’t care if it’s (Jacoby) Brissett, Bailey Zappe, Jayden Daniels or Drake Maye. Go grab the youngster one weapon. One. Because right now, you don’t have that weapon. You have a bunch of twos and threes, maybe.”
Former Bills linebacker Shawne Merriman doesn’t believe the deal was in Buffalo’s favor, citing Fox News’ Ryan Gaydos.

“Now, what I am confused on is what the Buffalo Bills got for Stefon Diggs,” Merriman added, via Gaydos. “Stefon Diggs is still a top wide receiver in the league, and I say the Texans won this trade hands down. The Buffalo Bills didn’t get anywhere close to what they should have gotten for Stefon Diggs. So, that part didn’t make any sense at all.”

The deal details for Diggs may have provided the Patriots with the essential knowledge of what it would take to obtain a top wide receiver like Tee Higgins or Brandon Aiyuk.

Having Higgins or Aiyuk in a Patriots uniform would provide whoever quarterback starts Week 1 next season a true offensive weapon that Mac Jones never had.

The Patriots still have north of $47 million in cap space available, according to Spotrac.
