Because of the 2014 NFL schedule being released yesterday, some interesting news reported by Nick Underhill of masslive.com flew under the radar. According to Underhill, wide receiver Aaron Dobson’s recovery from foot surgery is going well, and he has yet to have any setbacks.

This is good news for the Pats, as Dobson is a young guy who could become a big part of this offense in the future. Dobson has a lot of talent, and if he could ever regain his health, he could become that deep threat that Tom Brady has been lacking ever since Randy Moss left.

Dobson amassed 37 receptions, 519 yards, and four touchdowns in his rookie season.

    I expect Dobson to make a big difference as a deep threat WR in his second year. He had on the job training in his rookie year and knows what Brady expects….should be the player to keep safeties honest and open the middle of the field for the other receivers. Dobson will be a key offensive weapon for Brady to gain large chunks of yardage and the homerun threat.
