Free Agent Pass Catchers Scooped Up After Week 1

A pair of NFL teams swiped some receivers off waivers Tuesday. No, Dez Bryant was not one of them. He's still tweeting on his couch.

Oakland Raiders

The Raiders' offense found Jordy Nelson and All-Pro Amari Cooper just four times on Monday night. Now, they've brought back Martavis Bryant -- who they cut during the preseason with looming suspension concerns. Irrelevant if Derek Carr can't throw to the right team.

New England Patriots

Tom Brady threw for 277 yards and three touchdowns on Sunday, and head coach Bill Belichick thinks he needs more weapons. The Patriot offense is always shuffling skill players like a worn out deck of cards. And even though we've seen this magic trick before, we'll still look at Brady and Belichick's slight-of-hand in awe as they turn 3s and 4s to kings and aces.

This offseason, they traded Brandin Cooks to the Rams and let Danny Amendola head to Miami. They're still waiting on Julian Edelman's four-game suspension, so they went and signed Corey Coleman and Bennie Fowler yesterday.

One man's trash is another man's tricks...
