Source: Pats bring in trio for workouts

September, 24, 2013
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.
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.
