Patriots | Offense has changed in 2010

If the New England Patriots trade WR Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings, they would create a huge void at receiver, reports Mike Reiss, of ESPNBoston.com. Moss has played in 196 out of 248 snaps for the team this year and there isn't another player on the team's roster who could step in and fill that role while also constantly threatening defenses deep. The offense, however, has morphed this year, as it is now more of a tight end-based attack. From 2007-09, the Patriots ran the majority of their snaps out of a three-receiver set. This year, however, they have run with three-receiver sets on just 36.2 percent of their plays while running with multiple tight ends 64.5 percent of the time. TEs Alge Crumpler, Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez have opened up new options for the offense.
