The Patriots worked out eight players Wednesday, including running back Kenjon Barner and receiver Kendall Wright, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

Wright, 28, was a first-round pick of the Titans in 2012. He made 280 catches for 3,244 yards and 18 touchdowns in his five seasons in Tennessee.

He spent last season in Chicago, making 59 catches for 614 yards and one touchdown.

Barner, 28, was a sixth-round pick of the Panthers in 2013. Carolina traded him to the Eagles before the 2014 season opener.

Although Barner didn’t play for the Eagles in 2014, he played 37 games with Philadelphia the past three seasons. He had 140 touches for 430 yards and three touchdowns.

  1. I like Blanding out of these players. I hope Pats can get Little Boston scott. He is tiny but elusive as heck can catch the ball as well. Good fit i believe. I realize he has a Condition but would love to kick the tired on him.

    they have like three of him already.

  3. white sony burkhead webb all bigger than Scott. Scott closer to Lewis than either back we have. I think still need that elusive back to help make yards on his own. Sony more power than elusive to me as a RB. Burkhead Sony Both tend to get hurt so depth is Key.

    No, the Pats just seem to work out players more than any other teams in case of emergency. Perhaps just one of the dozens of reasons the Pats are the Greatest NFL Dynasty of All-Time.

  5. “Bargain basement bin dumpster diving for the Pats???”

    Guess you haven’t been paying attention for the last 17 years. Belichick always churns the bottom few spots on the roster. Especially after preseason cuts are done and a ton of lower end players come on the market. He has often found gems in other team’s trash.

  6. It’s what a good HC does while cheerleader Tomlin choreographs his boys’ media in-fighting.

    Honestly, I am surprised there isn’t a rule against operating costs, which would include constant player interviews like the Pats always do.

    No team looks under more rocks or looks to check off more boxes than BB, which is why he was mocked for Framegate I and why Brady was mocked for Framegate II, with framejobs.

  8. belichick relentlessly rumages through other teams’ trash looking for useful spare parts to build another contender after 18 years of having last pick. he’s a genius we all agree.

  9. Yes only New England works out or brings in players on a regular basis. C’mon, take off the homer glasses. Always every team does it every week of the season. I thought this was well known but I guess not.

    Yes other teams do work out players but, if you go by these reports, NE does it more than other teams and seem to get better results overall. What we do know is that every time we read about NE trying out a player we get folks, and always the same folks, making the same tired 2-comment repertoire. It’s sad that in 2018, with all of our vast scientific knowledge, we haven’t cured this malady yet.
