Patriots beat writer Paul Perillo on the team's WR corps: "Money could play a key role in the breakdown at receiver. Danny Amendola still has four years left on his contract and would cost the team $3.2 million against the cap if he were cut. Brandon LaFell got $1 million to sign, and although it would not be impossible for the team to eat that total if things don’t work out, it would be highly unlikely. Matthew Slater is a special teams ace who provides loads of leadership, but until Tom Brady stops throwing the ball in his direction in playoff games we’ll continue to list him as a wideout. Josh Boyce and Kenbrell Thompkins could be in a battle for one spot. I like Boyce’s explosiveness and would like to see him stay healthy and get a chance to contribute. Thompkins was a nice story as an undrafted rookie last year but he doesn’t consistently catch the ball and also had his share of medical issues."
