The Patriots have upgraded their defense, now their focus should shift to the offensive side of the ball, where many questions lay unanswered.

According to Jason La Canfora, the Pats are currently working on a deal to retain Julian Edelman, a move that would definitely help Tom Brady and his receiving corps.

Edelman has a few other suitors, including the Browns, and the 49ers. But as La Canfora mentions, I think Edelman staying with the Pats was the most likely scenario all along, even though I personally wish Bill Belichick and company would have pursued Emmanuel Sanders.

If Edelman does in fact sign with New England, they can’t throw in the towel on improving the offensive side of the ball. Brady still needs more targets, and I would still like to see the interior of the offensive line improved. Whether it is through free agency, or the draft, the Patriots can’t be done adding to the “Brady Bunch”.
