The New England Patriots reportedly are looking to make some noise ahead of Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline.

The Patriots want to add a “bona fide,” “premium” wide receiver, FOX Sports’ Jay Glazier reported Sunday morning. New England even is willing to part with high draft picks in order to facilitate a deal, according to Glazer.

Glazer’s report likely will surprise many. Given the Patriots’ acquisition of Josh Gordon and the return of Julian Edelman, New England’s offense seems well-equipped for another Super Bowl run. Furthermore, you could argue the team needs to add more premium talent on the defensive side of the ball, not on offense.

But this is Bill Belichick we’re talking about, so it’s wise to always expect the unexpected.
