Welcome Gabriel

The Patriots yesterday acquired 6-foot-2, 215-pound Doug Gabriel from the Oakland Raiders, and in return the Raiders acquired the Patriots 5th round draft pick. Gabriel is heading into his 4th season in the league, and beat out Jerry Porter for the starting spot last season.

This might have been a huge pickup not knowing how much longer Branch will be out, or if he ever returns to the Patriots. Gabriel is a good wide receiver, which many were surprised to see traded from a passing offense which Oakland thrives on, but also stacked with good receivers.
