RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Officially a depth wideout, Slater will continue to earn most of his keep with the Patriots as a key special-teamer. His prowess in that area has earned him two trips to the Pro Bowl.

2012

Slater is a depth wideout for the Patriots, but he will continue to earn most of his keep with the Patriots as a key special-teamer.

2011

A depth receiver who has stuck around this long thanks to his special team's play.

2010

A depth wideout, who earns most of his keep in the return game.

2009

Will need to flash his special teams skills in training camp to stick withe Patriots as a returner/depth wideout.

2008

Slater, who the Patriots traded up to draft, should stick with the team since his skills as a returner should help the likes of Ellis Hobbs and Wes Welker focus more on their starting assignments, rather than special teams.
