The New England Patriots, who find themselves a little thin at wide receiver, have brought in some veteran talent to work out.
Eric Decker, who is a free agent, was brought in to work out for the Patriots on Monday:

Decker strikes me as a prototypical Patriot and was a player that we had on our offseason watch list. With Edelman missing the first 4 games and the team dealing with injuries at the WR position, Decker seems like the perfect fit.
In his career, Decker has amassed 5,816 receiving yards on 439 receptions and 53 touchdowns. If the 6’-3” receiver is going to come to New England, he will have to change his number 87 that he has had his entire career.
