The Patriots parted ways with Donte Stallworth on Monday, a first of likely several cuts to their extremely deep receiving corps. Stallworth has jumped around to several different teams in the past few seasons, but he hasn't been able to make a real impact wherever he's been.
Analysis: New England really loaded up on extra weapons for Tom Brady this offseason. Stallworth caught three passes for 40 yards this past week against the Buccaneers, but it's clear the Patriots are not sold on his ability at the age of 31. With Stallworth gone, Jabar Gaffney and Deion Branch remain in control of the third and fourth receving spots. There won't be enough targets to go around every game for everyone to make an impact, but it's at least worth noting who the top four are in the pecking order in Josh McDaniels' high octane offense.
