09:39 AM ET 02.21 | The New England Patriots are still searching for a replacement for former tight end Aaron Hernandez, and they are actively going after tight ends who are in attendance in Indianapolis for the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine. During their first day in Indianapolis, the Patriots have met with Texas Tech's Jace Amaro, Washington's Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Iowa's C.J. Fiedorowicz and Notre Dame's Troy Niklas for interviews. The notable name absent from their meetings is North Carolina's Eric Ebron, but that is likely because they expect Ebron to be long gone before they are on the clock.

So many needs, WR, TE, pick any defensive position.

Insert your Aaaron Hernandez in prison joke here.

Would be nice to find a guy with Hernandez's on field talent, but he was a rare combination of TE, WR, blocking back, and HB.
Not many of those around.
Settle for a guy who can catch and run, teach him the rest

How are their pistol skills?

Sample questions for potential NE TE's in this year's draft:

1 - Do you turn off your closed circuit TV before you assassinate people?

2 - We have a play called MS-13. Does that confuse you with prior affiliations?

3 - Do you keep F. Lee Bailey on retainer?

4 - Do you tear up at the ending of "Scar Face"?

Heck, if people ask if Dez Bryant's mom is a prostitute, why not these?
