The Panthers recently cut their top wide receiver. The Panthers have now lost their No. 2 and No. 3 receivers to free agency.
Tom Curran of CSN New England reports that the Patriots have agreed to terms with Brandon LaFell. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that it’s a three-year deal. The loss of LaFell and his 627 receiving yards follows the cutting of Steve Smith (745) and the acquisition of Ted Ginn (556) by the Cardinals.
The acquisition of LaFell comes on the same day the Patriots re-signed Julian Edelman. Already on the roster were Danny Amendola, Aaron Dobson, and Kenbrell Thompkins.
The Patriots also are reportedly planning to visit with Kenny Britt on Monday.
While the Patriots may not have a high amount of quality at the position, it looks like they’ve got the quantity thing covered.
