It should be a busy week for the Patriots when it comes to new players joining the team.

Tthe team has three open roster spots following Monday's moves, as it has released wide receivers Riley McCarron and Chad Hansen, while running back Jeremy Hill has been placed on injured reserve after reportedly tearing his ACL on Sunday.

McCarron botched a punt late in Sunday's win, while Hansen was a healthy scratch after joining the team last week. The Patriots now have just Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett and Cordarrelle Patterson at wide receiver.

It's pretty clear at least one of the three spots will go to a wide receiver. Veteran Kendall Wright could be an option after reportedly working out for the team last week, and then Dez Bryant remains a free agent and will always be connected to the team.

Stay tuned as it will be interesting to see who the new faces are.
