Poll Friday: New England WR targets

2/29/2012

The New England Patriots are in the market for a big-play wide receiver to bring the deep ball back to their offense. The reigning AFC champions have several options in free agency.

In our latest edition of "Poll Friday," we want to know which receiver the Patriots should chase in free agency to pair with Wes Welker and tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez.

Should the Patriots sign Brandon Lloyd? There is certainly a connection, as Lloyd thrived in Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels' offense while together in Denver. Lloyd said he owes his career success to McDaniels and the pair could reunite in New England.

What about Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Mike Wallace? His situation is tricky as a restricted free agent. Pittsburgh is expected to place a first-round tender on Wallace. That would require the Patriots to give up one of their two first-round picks and sign Wallace to an expensive contract Pittsburgh couldn't match. Is it worth it for the 2011 Pro Bowler?

There is also the wild card of Randy Moss. He was once a great deep threat for the Patriots and wants to return to football at the age of 35. Moss' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, says there are teams interested. Should New England consider it? Finding a receiver in the draft also is an option.
