WR Justin Hunter To Visit Patriots

The Patriots have been connected to a number of free agents, and we now have another wideout to add to the list. ESPN’s Field Yates tweets that Justin Hunter is set to visit the organization today.

The former second-rounder joined the Bills early during the 2016 season after being waived by the Dolphins. In 12 games (five starts) with Buffalo, the receiver hauled in 1o catches for 189 yards and four touchdowns. The 25-year-old’s best season came in 2014 with the Titans, when he finished with 29 receptions, 498 yards, and three touchdowns.

Hunter certainly wouldn’t replace Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, or Malcolm Mitchell on the Patriots’ depth chart. The wideout could logically slide in as the team’s fifth receiver, or he could replace Danny Amendola as the fourth option.

    No thank you. Especially since we are rumored to be trading for Cook(please don’t happen) so that would give us so many WRs maybe this is a sign that the Cooks deal isn’t happening if that is the case i wouldn’t mind this signing but don’t just start spending money to spend money especially since they haven’t resigned Hightower yet

    No worries. The pats love to bring in available players for a workout. It’s a good way to identify skill set and weaknesses of players they could face down the road.
