Earlier today, the Patriots made a trade with the New Orleans Saints to pick up former Oklahoma speedster Jalen Saunders. The Patriots made another move at the position, claiming DaVaris Daniels after the Minnesota Vikings released him for their own cuts to shrink the roster to 75. The Patriots top receivers are Julian Edelman, Brandon LaFell, Aaron Dobson, Reggie Wayne, Danny Amendola, and Matthew Slater. It's unlikely those guys play much of the final preseason game against the New York Giants. Instead we'll see Jimmy Garoppolo throwing passes to Chris Harper, Daniels, and Saunders.

As a side note, Daniels' father is long time defensive lineman Phillip Daniels. You might remember him as the guy who wrecked Peyton Manning's neck in 2006.
