FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- With the Patriots placing veteran receiver Torry Holt (knee) on injured reserve today, here is one opinion as to how the team's receiver depth chart will break down:
A player like Aiken, who some have viewed to possibly be on the roster bubble, might earn a bit more security with Holt landing on injured reserve.
An eight-year veteran, Aiken was the Patriots' special-teams captain in 2009. Of the receivers on the bottom half of the depth chart, he's had the most experience as an emergency option when injuries strike.
