The Patriots are trying to trade wide receiver Aaron Dobson, according to Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com (Twitter link). Dobson has played 128 snaps this preseason, as Breer notes, allowing other clubs to get a good look at him.
Dobson, 25, is a former second-round pick, but he’s never broken out since joining New England in 2013. In three seasons with the club, the Marshall product has only posted 53 receptions for less than 700 yards. Most of that production came during his rookie season, as Dobson has put up only 16 catches during the past two years. Entering the final year of his rookie deal, Dobson will earn about $872K in base salary.
The Patriots have already been active on the trade market in recent days, as they acquired Barkevious Mingo from the Browns and attempted to deal Bryan Stork to the Redskins. Stork, however, failed his physical, ending the trade.
