The Patriots are taking a look at a veteran receiver.
Ben Volin of the Boston Globe reports that the Patriots worked out former Buccaneers and Bills receiver Mike Williams today.
The 28-year-old Williams played his college football at Syracuse and was a fourth-round draft pick of the Bucs in 2010. He played last year for the Bills but didn’t do much, catching eight passes for 142 yards. Williams is no relation to the Michael Williams who currently plays tight end for the Patriots, or the former Lions first-round receiver who’s also named Mike Williams, or the Mike Williams who was a 2002 first-round pick of the Bills.
The Patriots also brought in former Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland and former Chiefs quarterback Ricky Stanzi for workouts.
