While officially listed as a wideout by the Patriots, Slater has not hauled in a regular-season pass since 2011. He finished last year with one carry for five yards and zero catches in 13 games. The 2008 fifth-rounder, who turns 32 in September, maintains his spot on the team with his continuing strong special teams play and respected leadership presence.
Slater isn't on the fantasy radar, but his special teams play and the leadership he brings to the Patriots keeps his roster spot with the team fairly secure heading into the 2015 campaign.

Will need to flash his special teams skills in training camp to stick withe Patriots as a returner/depth wideout.
Slater, who the Patriots traded up to draft, should stick with the team since his skills as a returner should help the likes of Ellis Hobbs and Wes Welker focus more on their starting assignments, rather than special teams.
