The arguments: Brittain is taking her chances with Jenkins, the experienced veteran who’s in his first season in New England. She maintains that the much younger Aiken hasn’t done nearly enough in prior NFL seasons to prove his worth. Brittain also likes what she’s seen from Jenkins during spring practices. Lowe, on the other hand, is confident that Aiken will make the team, citing his half a season of experience on the Patriots’ practice squad last season as an edge over the newcomer Jenkins. Lowe is also impressed with Aiken’s measurable and believes at least one young, untested receiver like Aiken will beat out an established vet like Jenkins.
The verdict – Jenkins: It really is a tough call this year, as both Lowe and Brittain point out, with so much turnover at the wide receiver position from a year ago. It’s conceivable that both of these tall receivers could find themselves on New England’s 53-man roster at the end of the summer, but if there’s only room, it will likely be Jenkins, who spent most of his down time in spring practices attached to the hip of quarterback
Now it's your turn to weigh in. Who has a better chance of making the Patriots roster at wide receiver – Michael Jenkins or Kamar Aiken?
