Weekly Patriots chat recap

Every Thursday on ESPNBoston.com, there is a Patriots chat in the late morning/early afternoon. Today's chat kicked off at 11 a.m. ET, can be recapped here, and included some of the following topics:

  1. Looking closer at offensive line and how highly it rates as an area to address.

  2. Following up on free-agent RB Michael Bush.

  3. Linebacker Brandon Spikes making headlines with his tweets about the Patriots.

  4. Chatters are down on receiver Danny Amendola.

  5. Would selecting a running back in the second round be too early?

  6. Depth needed at linebacker, but is it such that the team should consider taking a linebacker early?
