  Cardinals | Arizona adds Aaron Dobson    Thu Jan 5, 12:31 PM

Free-agent WB Aaron Dobson (Patriots) signed a Reserve/Future contract with the Arizona Cardinals Thursday, Jan. 5. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Dobson winds up where now-Patriots (and former Cardinals) WR Michael Floyd was. He's had a problem with drops dating back to his days in college at Marshall. Dobson did not fix those problems, and he did not mesh well with QB Tom Brady. We're not counting on him to ignite his pro career, although a change of scenery will give us more data points. Dynasty owners should be monitoring Dobson.

Free-agent WR Aaron Dobson (Patriots) worked out for the San Diego Chargers Wednesday, Sept. 14, according to a source.

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson, RB Tyler Gaffney, WR Keshawn Martin, WR DeAndre Carter, WR Chris Harper, RB Joey Iosefa, WR Devin Lucien and TE Bryce Williams were released Saturday, Sept. 3.

Footballguys view: The Patriots put Dobson on the trade block, but there were no takers. A bad route-runner with bad hands, we don't think the phone lines will be burning up to add him.

  Patriots | Aaron Dobson on the way out?    Wed Aug 31, 11:24 PM

The New England Patriots have been shopping WR Aaron Dobson, and they might be ready to move on after what has been a frustrating run for him with the team. Injuries have set him back and kept him from achieving his full potential. Now, beat writer Ian Logue predicts if he does reach his potential it might be somewhere else.

Footballguys view: No team should have interest in Dobson as his tape is poor and his game is in need of a lot of work. The Patriots do a lot of things right, but finding WR talent through the draft is not one of them. Dobson was a second-round pick in 2013 and has done little of note as a pro. The concentration problem that plagued him in college has followed him to the NFL. His propensity to get banged up doesn't help either.

  Patriots | New England shopping Aaron Dobson    Tue Aug 30, 03:46 PM

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson is on the trading block.

Footballguys view: Who needs a WR with bad hands? We can't imagine the market is going to be white hot for Dobson's services. In college at Marshall, people blamed poor QB play for the lack of production from Dobson. Well...he doesn't have the excuse in the pros catching passes from Tom Brady. A second-round pick in 2013 by the Patriots, Dobson may not get many more chances in the NFL.

  Patriots | Aaron Dobson, Keshawn Martin battling    Thu Aug 18, 12:49 AM

New England Patriots WRs Aaron Dobson and Keshawn Martin are battling for the fifth receiver spot on the depth chart. Both are considered the leading candidates heading into the second preseason game.

Footballguys view: Unless injuries strike, this is the equivalent of a walk on role as a zombie on The Walking Dead. You can say "hey look it's me" and point, but on the whole nobody will care aside from family. Unless there are copious amounts of injuries ahead of them, neither player looks like he has any fantasy value, and doesn't even get to wear cool makeup or get an arrow bolt to the dome from Norman Reedus.

  Patriots | Four WR spots set in New England    Tue Aug 2, 11:27 PM

New England Patriots WRs Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola and Malcolm Mitchell are considered locks as the top four wide receivers. The team is expected to keep one or two more receivers from a list that includes WRs DeAndre Carter, Aaron Dobson, Chris Harper, Devin Lucien, Keshawn Martin and Nate Washington. Dobson has reportedly looked good in training camp so far, but the fact he doesn't play special teams might hurt his chances. Martin received a $600K bonus in January, so he might be the favorite for the No. 5 job.

Footballguys view: Edelman and Amendola's injury history makes the #5 receiver winner worth noting. Mitchell is the receiver to target late, but Martin can play inside and outside and could have value by the end of the season if he makes the team.

  Patriots | Several Pats receivers on bubble    Mon Jun 27, 03:02 PM

New England Patriots WRs Keshawn Martin, Aaron Dobson, Nate Washington and Chris Harper are all considered to be on the roster bubble by Paul Perillo of patriots.com. Perillo added that the mostly likely scenario is Martin, Dobson and Washington battling for one or two roster spots.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate that Washington has struggled to get on the same page with QB Tom Brady during the offseason. Dobson had a lot of drops in college at Marshall, and his lack of concentration has continued as a pro. None of these receivers have much (if any) fantasy relevance even if they do make the 53-man roster.

New England Patriots WRs Julian Edelman (foot), Danny Amendola (knee) and Aaron Dobson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

  Patriots | Aaron Dobson should miss Week 12    Tue Nov 24, 05:20 PM

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (ankle) is expected to miss at least Week 12 with an ankle injury, and possibly more time. Dobson's X-rays were negative, though.

Footballguys view: Dobson was unlikely to do much against the Broncos anyway. The Patriots receiving corps is incredibly banged up heading into a matchup on the road against a strong Broncos defense.

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson's (ankle) X-rays came back negative, but the Patriots are waiting for more information from his MRI, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Patriots here. Dobson's ankle injury was feared to be severe. He's still not a lock to play on Sunday against the Broncos, but negative X-rays are a good sign.

  Patriots | Aaron Dobson bumped up depth chart    Mon Nov 16, 12:22 PM

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson was bumped up the depth chart one spot when WR Julian Edelman (foot) was injured in Week 10.

Footballguys view: Dobson doesn't run the same routes that Edelman does, but he should see a bump in targets. We think Danny Amendola is the player to emerge without Edelman. The two are similarly built and can work underneath routes for Tom Brady.

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson tied a career-high with seven catches for 87 yards Sunday, Sept. 20, in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Dobson was fired up and running his mouth after a few catches. He needs to slow down there, keep his confidence and continue to produce. Dobson has been a major disappointment to this point in his career, but he might be trending up if this level of production can continue.

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (hamstring) believes he can participate in practice at this time, but the team is being cautious with his recovery.

Footballguys view: Dobson had built some momentum early in camp, but the downfield threat needs to get back on the field if he's going to push for snaps in three wide receiver sets.

  Patriots | Aaron Dobson has injury    Sat Aug 8, 01:47 PM

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (hamstring) has missed practice recently due to a hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: Dobson has a chance to be the deep threat for the Patriots after fizzling out last year. The role is of limited value with Tom Brady's deep ball in decline, but still worth monitoring. Hopefully this is only a days, not weeks injury for Dobson.

  Patriots | Aaron Dobson in great shape    Fri Jul 31, 09:48 AM

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson came into training camp in great shape, according to Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. Dobson 'put himself into good position,' Belichick said.

Footballguys view: Things haven't worked out for Dobson in the pros. He was a second-round pick coming out of Marshall, and the Patriots thought he could be an impact player. Instead, Dobson has battled injuries and only has 40 receptions in two years. If Brandon LaFell is slow to recover from whatever lower leg ailment is keeping him on the PUP, Dobson could become more interesting to monitor.

  Patriots | Aaron Dobson healthy, more comfortable    Sat Jun 20, 02:05 PM

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (hamstring) said he's feeling well and is more comfortable with the offense this year. 'I learned a lot, [I got] a lot of mental [repetitions]. I'm getting more comfortable with the playbook.' Dobson is competing with Brandon Gibson, Josh Boyce and Brian Tyms for roster spots this year.

Footballguys view: Dobson is in a make-or-break season with the Patriots. They drafted him in the second round of the 2013 NFL draft with the idea that he could be a threat on the outside. Injuries and inconsistencies have derailed his pro career, and Dobson only have three catches in 2014. Reports indicate he's been taking advantage of his opportunities in minicamp and OTAs. Dynasty owners can buy low right now if so inclined.

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (hamstring) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list, according to a source.

Footballguys view: As we've mentioned before, Dobson has had no impact this season, so this shouldn't hurt your team at all. The biggest question is whether he is worth any dynasty roster spots and given how little he did this year, it seems to us the answer is likely, no.

  Patriots | Bill Belichick refutes Aaron Dobson news    Fri Oct 3, 12:54 PM

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson wasn't benched the last few games for mouthing off to an assistant coach, according to head coach Bill Belichick. 'In my year and a half with Aaron Dobson , he has always been respectful to me and to the rest of the coaching staff. He has never once been argumentative or confrontational. The suggestion and reporting that his playing time was in any way the result of a 'loud disagreement' with a coach is completely false,' Belichick said.

Footballguys view: Dobson was a disappointing player in college at Marshall....and nothing has changed now that he's a second-year pro. The Patriots deep passing game is suffering this year, but we don't think an active (and healthy) Dobson is the elixir the team needs.

Footballguys view: The Patriots run a tight ship, which explains the discipline, but not how this item got out. At least it shows that Dobson wasn't benched for his play.
