ESPN Boston wonders if the Patriots will bring in competition for K Stephen Gostkowski this offseason.
Gostkowski has shown a steady leg in his time with the Patriots, but his salary is on the rise. He currently has the fourth-highest base salary on the team's books for 2013 at $2.5 million. For how accurate Gostkowski has been, he isn't asked to make too many tough kicks. He has attempted just ten kicks from 50-plus yards out in his seven-year career.
