Patriots shore up receiver depth

The Patriots don’t like to enter the draft with glaring needs, both to avoid tipping their hand and to allow themselves to take the best available player. Two moves they made on Wednesday — both at the receiver position — got them very close to their goal.

The Patriots re-signed receiver Julian Edelman to a one-year contract and will likely use him with Danny Amendola to fill the vacancy left by Wes Welker at the Z receiver position, which specializes in quick passes on the outside and slot play.
