Retooled Patriots receiving corps brings early excitement

The Patriots have had more than their share of luck when it comes to getting the most out of their receivers during the Bill Belichick era. Last season that guy was Chris Hogan, a modestly used player during his first four NFL seasons in Buffalo. This season, the Patriots are hoping Brandin Cooks can have similar success as he joins a loaded receiving corps that includes Hogan, Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and second-year wideout Malcolm Mitchell.
