08:00 AM ET 04.11 | March's free agent frenzy helped introduce a good number of new batterymates, with notable wide receiver and quarterbacks changing addresses, including Brandon Lloyd, who landed with New England and Tom Brady. Wes Welker (122) and Rob Gronkowski (17) may have led the NFL in receptions and touchdowns, respectively, but what the Patriots didn't get from Chad Ochocinco is exactly what they'll find in the newly-acquired Brandon Lloyd: A wideout who can line-up on the outside and stretch the field vertically. New England's defense remains a concern, but with four legitimate pass-catchers taking the field on offense, the Patriots should have no problem scoring points in 2012.

I would've guessed it was his hairdresser, but what do I know?

Awesome avatar! It's all about fixing the D with the Pats.

LLoyd will be Welker's best friend as well, opening up underneath.

Everyone should have a best friend...

Morning Mick..Nyuk,nyuk,nyuk...I didn't see the Pats as having a problem scoring last year...the defense was the question.

This is the sixth team he has played on in his career and the first one that is not totally dysfunctional.

If they'd picked up Super Mario, they'd really be set, but Bill let him go.

BB needs to replace 20 sacks from last year, with the loss of Carter and Anderson.

They never have a problem putting up points.

Of the first 62 picks in the draft they have 4. they should be able to find some much needed defensive help.

I know they didn't pay much to keep him around but why re-sign Ocho if you really don't need him. Maybe he's going to be Quality Control...

True, but this is an old story. BB has stock piled picks for years and still not fixed the defense. Ya could look it up.
