The Patriots have a number of newcomers at the tight end position, but it's not quite known what their roles will be.
There may be a clue with Ben Watson, as his contract suggests the team views him as a No. 1 tight end.
Watson is getting the most money out of any of the tight ends the Patriots signed this offseason, which is indicates they plan on him having a signifcant role. The other players' deals leave the door open for them to potentially be cut over the summer.
