Weekly Patriots mail is delivered
By Mike Reiss
Every Tuesday on ESPNBoston.com, questions from Patriots followers are answered as part of a weekly mailbag.
This week's mailbag has been posted
and includes some of the following topics:
1. What does the agreement with DT Tommy Kelly mean for drafting a player at the position, or pursuing a veteran defensive end?
2. Highlighting how the Patriots often view "needs" in a multi-year snapshot, not just the present year.
3. Bigger need -- pass-rusher off the edge or wide receiver?
4. Looking closer at the receivers in the draft, which is considered a deep group.
5. Tight end Rob Gronkowski's infection and the road ahead for his recovery.
6. Veteran safety Adrian Wilson and his projected role -- why not all three downs?
7. Cornerback Ras-I Dowling and defensive end Jake Bequette hoping for a breakthrough.
