Some new faces and potential new targets for Tom Brady were seen at Gillette Stadium on Monday.

As reported by ESPN’s Field Yates, wide receiver Jordan Matthews and tight end Troy Niklas were said to have paid New England a visit this week.

Matthews was a part of the Buffalo Bills last season, where he played in 10 games and posted 25 catches for 282 yards and one touchdown. Before last season, Matthews tallied eight touchdown catches in both 2014 and 2015 while with the Philadelphia Eagles. He also reached 800+ receiving yards in each of his three seasons with them.

Niklas was a member of the Arizona Cardinals last season where he played 15 games, recorded 11 catches for 132 yards and one touchdown.

These visits come just a few weeks after the Patriots lost wide receiver Danny Amendola to the Miami Dolphins. New England then acquired wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson via trade from the Oakland Raiders.

And it seems if though more moves could be on the rise.
