Source: Pats bring in trio for workouts
By Field Yates
The Patriots worked out a trio of players on Tuesday -- tight ends Ryan Otten and Bryce Davis as well as running back Jeremy Wright -- according to a league source.
Otten, 6-foot-6 and 241 pounds, originally was signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent this past spring, but was later waived by the team. He was a productive player at San Jose State, where he finished with nine touchdowns over his last two seasons.
Davis previously was with the Cincinnati Bengals and has served as a long snapper. The 24-year-old attended Central Oklahoma.
Wright, another undrafted player, left Louisville early and eventually signed on with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He finished his college career in style, scoring a touchdown in the Cardinals' upset win over Florida in the Sugar Bowl.
None of these players was signed to a contract, as it's possible this was a workout that the team used to keep tabs on its list of priority free agents.
