Agent: WR Tuinei agrees with Pats

August, 1, 2013
The Patriots are down to just one open roster spot, as they have agreed to terms with former Oregon wide receiver Lavasier Tuinei, according to his agency, Paradigm Sports Management.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Tuinei had 108 career catches for 1,212 yards and 12 touchdowns during three college seasons at Oregon, the last of which came in 2011.

He signed on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2012, spending time on the team's practice squad that season. He was signed by the Bengals to a reserve/future contract following the 2012 season, before later being waived. He subsequently spent time with the Dallas Cowboys.

The Patriots now have 11 wide receivers on the roster after letting go of both Lavelle Hawkins and Perez Ashford on Wednesday.
Field Yates has previous experience interning with the New England Patriots on both their coaching and scouting staffs. A graduate of Wesleyan University (CT), he is a regular contributor to ESPN Boston's Patriots coverage and ESPN Insider.
