Patriots.com News Blitz - 5/10/2013

Posted May 10, 2013

The Patriots.com News Blitz gets you up to date with the latest news from local and national media.

Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe reports that surgery for Rob Gronkowski's left forearm will be decided in two weeks once his antibiotic therapy is finished, according to a league source.

"If Gronkowski has to undergo another surgery, it will be the fourth on his arm, which he initially broke in the latter stages of the Patriots’ win over Indianapolis on Nov. 18," she adds.

Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald believes that Danny Amendola and Aaron Dobson are the only two locks to make the Patriots' roster at wide receiver. This comes on the heels of the team's newest addition at wideout yesterday, when they signed veteran Lavelle Hawkins.

"Hawkins, who adds depth while Julian Edelman recovers from foot surgery, will compete for a roster spot along with the rest of the wideouts," writes Howe.

Field Yates of ESPNBoston.com gives his scouting report on Patriots rookie wide receiver Aaron Dobson. He notes that the team hasn't had a receiver with Dobson's size and speed combination during either of the past two seasons.

"He has the speed to be used in bubble screens and could become a major factor in the red zone because of his size and ability to play with excellent body control with the ball in the air in man coverage," writes Yates.

Tom E. Curran of CSNNE.com reports that in addition to hosting former-Cowboys running back Felix Jones for a workout on Thursday, veteran guards Rex Hadnot and Antoine Caldwell also paid a visit to Gillette Stadium.

"That players are being hosted now doesn't necessarily mean signings are imminent. There could be adds or the scouting staff may be merely evaluating the crop of unsigned players to see who is in a position to help if something unforeseen happens," adds Curran.

Christopher Price of WEEI.com writes that Terrell Owens recently had a conversation with BlindsideFootball.com, in witch the polarizing wide receiver said playing for the Patriots would be a "no-brainer."

"You look at what they've done over the years. Under the tutelage of Tom and Coach [Bill] Belichick, I think the sky would be the limit in terms of what I’d be able to do, considering my body of work and my history of playing the game," said Owens.
