NFL Rumors: Patriots Have "Called About Availability" Of Two Stud Receivers

Despite signing free agent wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster on Wednesday, the New England Patriots are looking to add more.

The Patriots has expressed interest in acquiring Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and Denver Broncos receiver Jerry Jeudy.

In addition to these potential trades, the Patriots attended a workout by 30-year-old free-agent receiver Odell Beckham Jr. last week in Arizona, who is seeking a contract worth $20 million.

The team's pursuit of additional receiving options comes after losing top wideout Jakobi Meyers to the Las Vegas Raiders in free agency and despite recently signing JuJu Smith-Schuster to a three-year, $33 million deal.

With young quarterback Mac Jones in need of support, the Patriots are actively seeking to strengthen their receiving corps, especially as Nelson Agholor could also depart in free agency. 

Hopkins, who is said to be "flexible on the last two years of his contract," would immediately take over as the top WR if he were to join the Patriots.

On the other hand, Jerry Jeudy is reportedly available for "at least" one first-round draft pick, a price that many teams may find too steep for the fourth-year wide receiver.

The Patriots will need to weigh their options carefully as they look to bolster their offense for the upcoming season, but it's good to see the team being aggressive this offseason after a disappointing 2022 season. Photo Credit:  Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports
