#Tom Brady has won more Super Bowl championships than any quarterback in NFL history. Now that Brady is about to turn 40, and one year after breaking the Super Bowl record, the New England Patriots might have just completed the greatest offseason in NFL history for a Super Bowl winner. After such a great 2016 NFL season, the Patriots have built what might be the best offense they have ever given Brady in his career in New England.

New England Patriots wide receivers

Tom Brady has always had a good receiver at his disposal with names like Wes Welker and Randy Moss at the top. However, the New England Patriots have built such an impressive wide receiver corps for the 2017 NFL season that a former number one weapon might be the fifth option at receiver in 2017.

The depth chart at this time for the New England Patriots includes Brandin Cooks, Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Malcolm Mitchell, Danny Amendola, and Andrew Hawkins. The Patriots acquired former first round pick Cooks in a trade with the New Orleans Saints. In the last two seasons, Cooks has averaged 1,155 yards and 8.5 touchdowns a season. That is a huge addition for the Patriots.

Julian Edelman was the leading receiver in 2016 for the New England Patriots with 98 receptions for 1,106 yards and three touchdowns. Chris Hogan added 57 catches for 680 yards and four touchdowns. Mitchell, Amendola, and Hawkins just provide Tom Brady with amazing depth and coverage for injuries.

Patriots running back depth

The New England Patriots have never had the best depth at running back although last season LeGarrett Blount ran for an NFL-high 18 touchdowns.

The Patriots let Blount walk as a free agent and he signed with the Philadelphia Eagles. That made it look like Tom Brady was losing a key weapon in the running game.

However, that might not be true. Second-year running back D.J. Foster has looked explosive in the early team activities this offseason and is catching the ball as well as running it. James White, who was a star in the New England Patriots Super Bowl win this last season, is also back. Add in Brandon Bolden, Rex Burkhead, Dion Lewis, and Mike Gillislee, and there will be one or two deserving #Running Backs looking for a job before the season starts.

Rob Gronkowski

Finally, there is no overlooking the biggest offensive weapon for Tom Brady and that is tight end Rob Gronkowski. After missing out on playing in the Super Bowl in 2016, Gronkowski is back and wants to put his injuries behind him. New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said that Gronk looks great this offseason and is involved in everything. If Rob Gronkowski is back to full strength, the additions to the Patriots' offense might make them the best team in the NFL in 2017. #Wide Receivers
