New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell and Kenbrell Thompkins each posted touchdown grabs in the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Friday, Aug. 15. LaFell was targeted three times, catching two for 29 yards and the score, while Thompkins had three receptions for 32 yards and a touchdown while being targeted four times.
Huddle Up: While Tom Brady praised Thompkins after the game, it's still up in the air who will emerge, if anyone, in this battle. With Aaron Dobson (foot) still out, Thompkins has made the most of his pre-season starting opportunities. But the spot is still likely Dobson's to be had if he can get healthy.

Updating a previous item, New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell is expected to make roughly $11 million over three years with his new contract. No information was available on how much money is guaranteed.
Huddle Up: LaFell hit career highs with 49 receptions and 5 TDs last season in Carolina and now figures to be nor worse than Tom Brady's No. 3 or 4 top target (behind TE Rob Gronkowski, WR Julian Edelman and RB Shane Vereen).

The Carolina Panthers likely will allow impending free-agent WR Brandon LaFell and CB Captain Munnerlyn to test the free-agent this offseason. The team could look to re-sign both to shorter, team-friendly deals at some point.
Huddle Up: LaFell, a 3rd-round pick in 2010, hit career highs with 49 catches (for 627 yards) and 5 TDs, but it sounds like the Panthers would rather bring back Ted Ginn Jr. and add another wideout rather than look for more improvement out of LaFell.

Carolina Panthers WR Brandon LaFell (knee) practiced in full Tuesday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: LaFell only has 14 receptions over the past 4 games, but he's made them count, racking up 242 yards and scoring a trio of TDs. You can do a lot worse if you're struggling to to find waiver-wire WR help.
