New England Patriots need receiving help even though they re-signed slot receiver Julian Edelman to an extension earlier in the week.
These are the views of NFL analyst Skip Bayless who feels that the Patriots need to improve their receiving corp so they have the ability to threaten teams with the deep passing game.
Last season their best wideout for the Patriots was Edelman, but he only gained just over 1,000 yards, with Brady spreading the ball around several different receivers over the course of the season.
The Pats utilized a short passing game to be effective in the NFL and it worked as they made it to the AFC Championship Game.
They were knocked out of the post-season in the penultimate game though, as Denver Broncos exposed them.
An outlet that they were adjudged to be missing in 2013 was deep receiving threat, and Bayless believes they should sign a certain Philadelphia Eagles WR to fill the void.
"I sure wish the Patriots could figure a way to trade for DeSean and get him to restructure deal. Brady still needs a deep threat," Bayless tweeted Wednesday.
