Brown is back

After deciding not to retire and play one more season, Troy Brown is back with the Patriots.

The crowded Pats wide receiver situation is looking even more crowded. But that's a good thing!

The Patriots now have 13 wide outs currently signed with the team. At least seven (but not more then eight) will probably still be around after training camp but that's not taking injury's into factor.

Here's a list of the guys the Patriots have and my guesses on who's a lock to make the team and who's not.

100% Chance of Making the Team
*Troy Brown
*Wes Welker
*Donte' Stallworth
*Randy Moss

90% Chance
*Chad Jackson

70% Chance
*Jabar Gaffney
*Kelley Washington
*Reche Caldwell

25% Chance
*Kelvin Kight
*Bam Childress

10% Chance
*Jonathan Smith

Better be Praying
*Chris Dunlap
*C.J. Jones

As it looks now, either if the Patriots decide to load up on one roster spot it would seem wise for them to do it here. The depth of this unit over last years unit is amazing. Just think about it, last year Reche Caldwell was Tom Brady's go to guy. This year, Moss, Welker, Stallworth all could be number one wide receivers and Caldwell is going to be playing this preseason for a roster spot.

Why are you rating Chad Jackson so high? He wasn't that great.

Chad Jackson is really good when he's healthy. He's also a great punt returner. The Patriots invested a second round pick in him so he's not going anywhere for at least the next two years.

Chad Jackson is explosive and has the chance to be a Pro Bowl NFL wide receiver if he can stay healthy.

Also, I'd say Kelley Washington has at least a 90% chance. He's not a Stallworth or a Moss or anything, but they are paying him $22 million over the next 3 years. I'd presume that that money is not being doled out just for Big Kelley to rot on the practice squad.

Washington has played too many games in the NFL to go on the practice squad anyways. You can only be on the practice squad the first three seasons of your career and not play in over 16 regular season games during that time.
