For obvious reasons, it does not appear the Patriots are done with adding receivers.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Patriots are among the teams interested in free agent Jordy Nelson. The veteran wide out was released by the Raiders last week. Other teams who are interested are the Seahawks, Titans, Chiefs and Raiders. 

Nelson is visiting with Seattle on Monday.

The 33-year-old was semi-productive in his first and only year in Oakland, finishing with 63 receptions for 739 yards and three touchdowns. This likely could be even better with a better quarterback. With Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay, he had four, 1,000-yard seasons and could be a solid fit with Tom Brady and the Patriots.

As of now, here's what the Patriots depth chart at wide receiver looks like: Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett, Maurice Harris, Bruce Ellington, Matthew Slater, Braxton Berrios and Damoun Patterson.
