There has been a smattering of reports regarding visits conducted by the Patriots since the free-agency period.

Per a league source, seven in all have visited.

They were: running backs Benny Cunningham and James Starks; receivers Chris Hogan and Rod Streater; tight end Clay Harbor; defensive end Frank Kearse; and defensive back Sherrick McManis.

The Patriots typically don’t make immediate moves for big-name free agents. Those who do so typically pay a premium. The Patriots play it slowly, waiting for the inevitable bargains that will be available once the market softens.
