Even with the Patriots signing veteran Demaryius Thomas to a one-year deal, the wide receiver position remains a top need for the team. Here is one view of the current projected depth chart: 1. Julian Edelman; 2. Phillip Dorsett; 3. Demaryius Thomas; 4. Braxton Berrios; 5. Bruce Ellington; 6. Maurice Harris; 7. Damoun Patterson. The club could still have Josh Gordon as part of the mix, but it is tough to plan around that possibility given his NFL suspension.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and veteran defensive end Michael Bennett were not among those in attendance for the start of the team's voluntary offseason program on Monday, sources tell ESPN's Field Yates. Brady did not take part in last year's workouts and the expectation was that such was going to become his regular routine in an effort to spend time with his family. Bennett, meanwhile, has almost always trained away from his team during the offseason, making his offseason home in Hawaii.

The Patriots and veteran safety Patrick Chung have agreed to a one-year extension through 2021, sources tell ESPN's Field Yates. Chung, who entered the NFL as a second-round draft choice of the Patriots in 2009, is viewed as one of the team's most important defenders because of his versatility, toughness and ability to match up with opposing tight ends. He has said in the past that his preference is to only play for Bill Belichick. A one-year extension figures to provide Chung more up-front cash, which would be his motivation to agree to it.
