New England Patriots: Tight End
First of all, if tight end is your biggest problem, you’re probably in good shape, and we expect nothing less from the Patriots as long as Belichick and Brady are running the show. Nevertheless, the retirement of Rob Gronkowski leaves a sizable hole on their roster.
On the bright side, Gronkowski’s injury history means the Pats are used to being without him. But he’s a difference maker in big games, and he showed that yet again during the Super Bowl last season. Benjamin Watson was a nice pickup, but he’ll be suspended the first four games of the season, so New England could be scrambling to find a reliable tight end early in the year.
