After falling just short of their sixth Super Bowl win last year, the New England Patriots are eager to find the final piece to a championship puzzle. And it looks like they're willing to make a big move to get it.

According to a report by FOX NFL insider Jay Glazer, the Patriots are actively seeking a bonafide No. 1 WR to pair with Julian Edelman, James White, and the oft-injured Rob Gronkowski.

Glazer would not identify one particular receiver the Patriots had their eyes on.

However, he did mention Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas and San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon as players on the trade block.

The Patriots have not necessarily struggled to move the ball through the air, as Gronkowski, White and Josh Gordon have all averaged over 50 yards per game.

Earlier this season, the Patriots made a trade to land Gordon from the Cleveland Browns.

The trade deadline is this Tuesday afternoon.

New England plays the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football tomorrow.
