The New England Patriots struggled to deliver in 2013, enduring injuries to key players throughout the regular season and a devastating 26-16 loss to the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game. Now the Patriots must turn their attention to the future and decide what to do in the offseason.
The Patriots are strong at safety, but with the recent release of Steve Gregory, they could afford to build more depth at the position through free agency or the NFL draft. They also could bring in a safety to help their needs at cornerback.
New England also could use help on offense, though, as injuries to standout tight end Rob Gronkowski limited the Patriots’ attack last season.
