Belichick has no preconceived notions on Wayne deal

Bill Belichick is quite familiar with free agent wideouts in the twilight of their careers. So it's no surprise he's tempering expectations for the Patriots' new acquisition, 37-year-old Reggie Wayne.

"I think he has a lot of versatility, obviously he has a lot of experience so we’ll have to see how it goes," he said via

After eight 1,000-yard receiving performances in nine years, Wayne has looked a little more human of late, and New England seems very aware of that given the one-year deal they offered the veteran. But with Brandon Gibson on IR and no youngsters stepping up to the challenge, Wayne seems like a solid fit in a system that will likely get creative to get him the ball -- if he stays healthy.
