Aaron Dobson has played in only one game this season, a week 2 win over the Vikings, he caught one pass for 13 yards, but was only targeted twice. He hasn’t appeared on the injury list, he’s been a healthy scratch, so why has New England kept their 2nd year WR, who they hope can boost the offense on the bench? Apparently for having at least one loud argument with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, according to a league source.

There is concern Dobson has maturity problems, according to The Boston Globe’s Shalise Manza Young.

Monday Night the Patriots benched Dobson and Thompkins both, leaving Brady with only 3 wide receivers to throw too, so it made the Chiefs job of taking Edelman out of the picture very easy.

Dobson had foot surgery in the off-season that caused him to miss spring camps and to be limited in training camp. Missing the Dolphins game was most likely due to not rushing him back. He played against the Vikings in week 2 and then surprisingly sat out the next two games against the Raiders and Chiefs.

I can understand maybe one game for an argument with McDaniels, but not two, especially when you would only have 3 active wide receivers on the field for Tom Brady when the game plan involved a lot of passing.

The Patriots will most likely deny the reports out there by a league source or ignore it altogether, but it may have provided the answer as to why Dobson hasn’t been playing.

If Dobson does have maturity problems that are causing him to miss being on the field or a rift with the coaches then it will be counted as just another bust at the WR spot in the draft, regardless Dobson should be on the field, given a chance to make a name for himself and to find a place on the team.
