Josh Gordon is apparently not the end of the wide receiver overhaul for the New England Patriots.

According to sources, the Patriots are reportedly going in for a star studded wide receiver at the trade deadline in two days.

Fox Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer told his station’s NFL Sunday panel that the Patriots are indeed looking for cream of the crop talent at receiver and are willing to deal high draft picks.

Glazer said in the report that “the New England Patriots, they are trying to go after a bona fide, premium wide receiver, offering up high draft choices for that.”

The Patriots current wide receiver list stands at Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Josh Gordon, Phillip Dorsett, Cordarrelle Patterson, and Matthew Slater.

This list has a few big names but not exactly world beaters by any stretch of the word as Hogan who is the Patriots’ leading receiver in yards with 284 which is ranked at a whopping No.71 in the NFL.

The trade deadline is on Tuesday at 4 p.m. and the fact that the Patriots are looking to make a rare splash signals that the team may very well be all in this season.

    Quite a few times. Usually on running plays. He’s caught only one pass in his career for 46 yards.
