Patriots' D.J. Foster: Battling for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Foster (leg) saw his share of time on special teams during the Patriots' spring practices.

At this stage, Foster's versatility (he was both a running back and receiver in college) gives him a shot at securing a roster spot with the Patriots, though a slot on the practice squad could be his destiny to start the 2016 season. Of course, Foster's chances of securing a role in the team's backfield would increase if Dion Lewis, who is bouncing back from an ACL injury, ends up on the PUP list to begin the upcoming campaign.

Patriots' Nate Washington: Could be on roster bubble
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Washington could be on the Patriots' roster bubble.

At this stage, health permitting, Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell top the Patriots' wideout depth chart, with Washington slated to battle for depth slotting with Keshawn Martin, Aaron Dobson and Chris Harper. Whether the quartet ends up battling for just one spot (or more) depends on the team's injury situation, but for now, Washington has yet to gain much traction in the competition after reportedly seeming to struggle to get on the same page as QB Tom Brady during OTAs and minicamp. When he's on, Washington still has the ability to serve as a deep threat, but the veteran wideout will need to impress in training camp to land a roster spot with New England.

Patriots' LeGarrette Blount: Didn't participate in spring practices
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Blount (hip) didn't participate in any of the Patriots' spring practices, ESPN.com reports.

Blount's status will thus be worth monitoring as training camp approaches, but in the absence of any setbacks with his hip, we'd expect him to move toward the end of reclaiming the Patriots' "big back" role this coming season. Barring any additional moves by the team to address the running back position, Blount's primary competition for the role should come from Joey Iosefa and Tyler Gaffney. Meanwhile, Donald Brown, James White, Brandon Bolden and undrafted rookie D.J. Foster figure to jostle for slotting on the team's depth chart, with the only secure spot on that front belonging to Dion Lewis, who will serve as the team's top pass-catching back, provided he fully recovers from the knee injury that ended his 2015 season early.
