Aaron Dobson undergoes foot surgery


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) Patriots wide receiver Aaron Dobson underwent surgery on Monday to repair a stress fracture in his foot, according to the Boston Globe. It seems unlikely he'll be cleared in time for the start of the offseason program on April 21.

Dobson had 37 catches for 519 yards and four touchdowns in 2013.


Aaron Dobson still dealing with foot problem


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/3/2014) Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson is still dealing with the stress fracture in his left foot, which has limited his progress this offseason, reports the Boston Herald. He has to wait two weeks for a more definitive diagnosis, and the best thing for him right now is rest.

The report says Dobson could require surgery if giving his foot rest did not work. If that hapens, it sounds unlikely he'd be cleared in time for the April 21 start of the offseason program if he needs the procedure.

"Hopefully, I don't know yet, but hopefully I will be," said Dobson of his availability for the offseason program. 

Dobson heads into his second season hoping to improve on his rookie totals. He had 37 catches for 519 yards and four touchdowns in 2013.

"I've just got to build off that," Dobson said. "I definitely had a setback, but I feel like I have to build off that, take it for what it was, learn from it, the experience of the games I was in, playing good and take it and run with it."


Patriots have decisions to make at receiver


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/14/2014) The Patriots have to make some decisions at receiver this offseason, reports the Boston Herald

The first is deciding to pay free agent Julian Edelman. The report says Edelman might want a contract similar to what Danny Amendola got last season (five years and a max value of $31 million). But the Patriots will probably offer Edelman something similar to their offer to Wes Welker (two years, $10 million). Based on that, the report expects Edelman to chase the money elsewhere.

Amendola is safe this offseason despite a down year, but he could be released after the 2014 season if he struggles again. The team hopes the three second-year receivers of Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins and Josh Boyce continue to develop, and getting Rob Gronkowski (ACL) back at 100 percent is vital.

The Patriots also could look at receivers in free agency, especially if Edelman leaves, and they could be in play for Eric Decker, Jeremy Maclin or Hakeem Nicks. Or if Edelman returns, the Patriots could still add someone like Brandon LaFell, Nate Burleson, Riley Cooper or Kenny Britt.


Aaron Dobson looks like 'a difference maker'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2014) Receiver Aaron Dobson appeared to be "a difference maker" before suffering the first of his two foot injuries, and he's "a critical part of the development of the Patriots’ passing game going forward," reports ESPN.com. Dobson caught 42 passes in 12 games as a rookie while bringing "unique size and a catch radius that played a part in the red zone," the report added.

Dobson, 22, played just under half the offensive snaps. He's ticketed for a bigger role in 2014.  


Aaron Dobson seeking to come back from foot injury


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2014) Patriots wide receiver Aaron Dobson is working to rebound from a stress fracture in his left foot that ruined the second half of what had been a promising season.

Dobson caught 31 passes for 454 yards and four touchdowns in his first eight games. That alone was the most receiving yards and touchdowns for a Patriots rookie receiver in the Tom Brady era. But he managed just six catches for 65 yards the rest of the way, missing three games in the process.

"I guess I have wondered 'what if,' but stuff like that happens," Dobson told the Boston Herald. "You're not going to be 100 percent throigh the whole season, so I tried to get through it the best way I could."
