Over the weekend, we shared a list of free agent receivers the wideout-needy New England Patriots could target this offseason.

Well, we’re still more than 24 hours away from the official start of free agency, and nearly half of the players we listed already have found new homes outside New England during the NFL’s legal tampering period.

Included in that group of new signees are close to a half-dozen prominent slot receivers: Danny Amendola (Detroit Lions), Adam Humphries (Tennessee Titans), Jamison Crowder (New York Jets), John Brown (Buffalo Bills) and Cole Beasley (Bills).

(Only Amendola’s contract has been made official. The others must wait until the NFL league year opens at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday to sign theirs.)

The Patriots reportedly bid against the Titans for Humphries, who’s coming off a career season, but wouldn’t match Tennessee’s four-year, $36 million contract offer ($9 million in average annual value). Crowder and Brown also reportedly landed deals in the $9 million per year range, and Beasley’s is worth $7.25 million annually over four years.

Financially, it comes as no surprise that New England wasn’t willing to pay that premium for any of these players, especially since Julian Edelman is set to make just $5.5 million this season.

So who’s left for the Patriots, who currently have just Edelman, Braxton Berrios, Damoun Patterson and special teamer Matthew Slater under contract? Here’s a list of wideouts who were available as of 2 p.m. Tuesday:
