Cam Newton received much-needed depth at the wide receiver position on Tuesday.
At the deadline, the New England Patriots had an uncommon intra-division trade with the Miami Dolphins that landed Isaiah Ford. Though he isn’t a big-name guy that’ll change the team’s trajectory, the addition will still be extremely helpful. The Patriots currently have Jakobi Meyers, Damiere Byrd and Gunner Olszewski as the healthy and available options.
Julian Edelman is on the injured reserve list after getting a knee procedure and N’Keal Harry missed last week with a concussion. Newton had little-to-nothing to throw to and Ford’s 6-foot-2, 200 pound frame will provide some size in the red zone.
