Coach Bruce Arians recently "showered praise" on WR Aaron Dobson.
The Cardinals signed Dobson to a reserve/future deal in January, and Arians recently said he liked Dobson coming out of Marshall in 2013 and thinks his size (6'3/205) is a needed presence after Michael Floyd was cut last season. Dobson could have a chance to replace Floyd in three- and four-wide sets behind Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown. The Cardinals may also draft a wideout. Apr 10 - 9:59 AM

Cardinals signed Aaron Dobson to a reserve/future contract.

They also signed P Richie Leone to a reserve/future deal. Released by the Patriots at final cuts, Dobson spent a week on the Lions' roster early in the season but was otherwise unemployed. The second-round bust will be a long-shot for the final roster next year.
Jan 5 - 12:42 PM

Free agent WR Aaron Dobson visited the Colts.

The Colts promoted Tevaun Smith from their practice squad, but are still mighty thin at wideout. Ex-Patriot Dobson had a cup of coffee with the Lions earlier this season.

Lions waived WR Aaron Dobson.

Dobson lasted only a week on the active roster. With DeAndre Levy and Antwione Williams sidelined, LB Zaviar Gooden was promoted from the practice squad.

Lions signed WR Aaron Dobson.

Dobson will be mere depth at a position where Marvin Jones, Golden Tate and Anquan Boldin are the clear-cut top three. Often injured, Dobson has 16 receptions since 2013.

Free agent WR Aaron Dobson worked out for the Lions on Tuesday.

The Lions are full up at receiver. They're likely adding Dobson to their emergency list.

Free agent WR Aaron Dobson worked out for the Chargers on Wednesday.

Dobson's workout tour continues. He's already had auditions with the Eagles and 49ers this week. The Chargers are likely updating their emergency list should they suffer another injury after already losing Keenan Allen.

Free agent WR Aaron Dobson worked out for the 49ers on Tuesday.

Per CSN Bay Area, a signing is not imminent. The ex-Patriot worked out for the Eagles on Monday. Although the 49ers have arguably the league's thinnest receiver corps, Dobson would still be at the back of the line.

Free agent WR Aaron Dobson worked out for the Eagles on Monday.

The Eagles also had Da'Ron Brown, Jordan Leslie and DeAndrew White in for workouts. The Eagles have a thin receiving corps behind Jordan Matthews but Dobson isn't the answer. The former Patriot has caught just 53 passes for 698 yards and four touchdowns across three NFL seasons.

Patriots waived WR Aaron Dobson.

New England tried shopping Dobson but never got much traction as teams realized they could get him for nothing once the Patriots dropped him. An injury-prone underachiever, Dobson hasn't visited the end zone since his rookie year in 2013. The former second-round pick shouldn't have trouble latching on elsewhere, though his fantasy contributions will be minimal at best.

The MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Patriots are "shopping" Aaron Dobson.

They're shopping him because he'll be cut if/when they can't find a trade partner. Dobson has played over 100 snaps this summer, but has a modest six catches for 96 yards to show for it. Always hurt and mistake-prone, Dobson probably won't fetch a conditional day-three pick.
Tue, Aug 30, 2016 02:48:00 PM

Aaron Dobson hauled in 2-of-3 targets for 49 yards in the Patriots' third preseason game Friday night.

Dobson turned Tom Brady's first pass into a nice 37-yard catch-and-run, but he had another pass knocked out of his hands on the sideline later in the game. Dobson saw plenty of work with the first-team offense Friday night, but he will likely be supplanted by Malcolm Mitchell (elbow) once the rookie gets healthy.

Bill Belichick said Aaron Dobson has "had a good spring and a good few days here at training camp."

As has become the yearly tradition, Dobson has earned praise for his work in the spring and summer. He has yet to really capitalize on that good work during the regular season, however, which is a fact his coach made note of as well. "I think we’ve seen that from him before," Belichick said. "Hopefully, he’ll be able to stay on the field and continue to improve. I think that’s really the key, you know, it’s not just being healthy, but being healthy to practice and improve." Fighting for a roster spot in a crowded receiver room, Dobson has to stay on the field.

CSN New England's Phil Perry left Aaron Dobson off his 53-man roster projection.

Perry is unswayed by Dobson's strong spring, saying he will have to "continue to impress through training camp" to earn a roster spot. ESPN's Mike Reiss said earlier this month Dobson would be the starting "X" receiver if the season started then, which shows how jumbled New England's receiver situation is right now. Dobson may need to beat out both Keshawn Martin and Nate Washington to keep his job.

ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss believes Aaron Dobson would be New England's starting X receiver if the season started today.

Another offseason, another positive story on Dobson. Without question, Dobson has flashed in past spring and training camp practices, but he's never been able to stay healthy when the calendar flips to September through December. With just one year left on his deal, it's now or never for Dobson.
