The New England Patriots are going back to an old friend to help fill a hole on the wide receiver depth chart. And it's not Deion Branch this time.
Stallworth's anticipated signing doesn't bode well for Julian Edelman, who injured his foot during Sunday's win over the Miami Dolphins. He was seen on crutches after the game. The Patriots are lacking depth after cutting Branch last month and losing practice-squad player Greg Salas to the Philadelphia Eagles on waivers.
