New England Patriots A 'Long Shot' To Land Superstar Wide Receiver

Heading into this off-season, it became clear that if the New England Patriots wanted to reclaim former glory and make it back to the playoffs, they need to fix their offence, and the first step in that was to bring in former coach Bill O'Brien as the Offensive Coordinator.

Beyond that, they'll need to find some big time weapons for Mac Jones, Bailey Zappe or whoever their starting Quarterback will be, and one name that has been linked to them since the off-season began is Arizona Cardinals star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who has been linked to several teams.

With plenty of receivers becoming free agents this off-season, there's a chance they can add several players to help out one of their young Quarterbacks, but at this point, it appears that there are plenty of teams ahead of New England in the chase for D-Hop.
