New-look receiving corps led by Danny Amendola

FOXBOROUGH — With the Patriots expected to start the season with almost an entirely new receiving corps, getting those players in training camp and catching passes from Tom Brady couldn’t come early enough.

The top five receivers from last season, both in catches and yards, weren’t on the field when camp began on Friday morning under a cool, steady rain behind Gillette Stadium. Of the five, only tight end Rob Gronkowski, who is recovering from offseason surgeries on his back and forearm, is even on the roster. The other four — Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd, Aaron Hernandez, and Danny Woodhead — are no longer with the team.
