White Stephon Gilmore Jerseys , very interesting 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 Stephon Gilmore Jerseys 2019 , 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, 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 White Lawrence Guy Jerseys , 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 NFL.com. “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, 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. According to one source, New England believes that Arizona will draft a quarterback."In most years Lawrence Guy Jerseys 2019 , the first overall selection in the draft is known long before the clock officially starts ticking. 2019, however, will be different as the Arizona Cardinals have not yet given any clear indications about what they plan to do with pick number one. Will they draft Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray? Will they go after a defensive lineman like Nick Bosa or Quinnen Williams? Will they make a trade out of the top spot?Whatever their decision, its implications will be felt around the league — especially if Murray, as is expected at this point, indeed gets drafted by the Cardinals. And even though Arizona has publicly expressed support for 2018 first-round selection Josh Rosen as the team’s starting quarterback for now, it sounds as if people across the NFL feel that the team could very well invest in a new passer just one year after picking another tenth overall.Count some inside the New England Patriots organization among them as ESPN’s Josina Anderson recently shared on Twitter: unless the Cardinals get “blown away” by a trade offer, the belief is that 2018’s worst team will select Murray with the first overall selection. The fallout of such a decision might also have an impact on the reigning world champions because it would likely make Rosen available for a trade — if not right away, possibly later during the offseason.As we have discussed before here on Pats Pulpit White Rex Burkhead Jerseys , Rosen is an intriguing potential target should the Cardinals decide to go with Murray and put him up for sale. As colleague Mark Schofield wrote in his breakdown of the quarterback about to enter his second season in the NFL, “he might be the best option for the Patriots to address the quarterback position behind [Tom] Brady this offseason has to offer.”Whether or not push comes to shove regarding Murray and more importantly — from New England’s perspective — Rosen remains to be seen, of course. If Anderson’s reports from her Patriots sources and others across the league turn out to be true, however, expect speculation regarding the 2018 first-round quarterback to heat up immediately after the first pick of the 2019 draft gets announced tomorrow night.
