New England Patriots still searching for receiver help


The New England Patriots have yet to rule out wide receiver Danny Amendola for Week 7 against the New York Jets after he suffered a devastating concussion in Week 6, but he’s still expected to be out for at least a few weeks, and they’re now searching for more help at that position.

According to Mike Reiss  and Field Yates from ESPN Boston, the Pats hosted several free agent receivers today:

 

The most notable of which is Jordan Shipley, who led all rookies in receptions after being drafted in third round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals. After tearing his ACL in 2011, he’s bounced around from Cincinnati to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and last had a brief stint with the Jacksonville Jaguars during the preseason, but was ultimately cut.
