Altered offense won’t leave Patriots lacking

The Patriots have obviously undergone a lot of changes on offense this offseason. Tom Brady’s weapons caught 401 passes last year, and 356 of them (88.8 percent) are currently unavailable to the team, either through player departures (Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd, Aaron Hernandez, Danny Woodhead, etc.) or through injury (Rob Gronkowski).

The Patriots’ identity on offense the last two seasons revolved around their star tight ends, Gronkowski and Hernandez, but what the offense will look like this season is anyone’s guess.
