Patriots are working out former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Taylor Reed (SMU) today, according to a league source.

The Patriots brought DE Emeka Onyenekwu in for a workout, according to a source. Undrafted rookie, cut by the Dolphins last week.

Also, DB Travis Howard (Ohio State) in for workout with Patriots. Commonplace for team to continue to work out players at this time of year.

Hope they sign Terry Hawthorne Very Happy

Belichick must have watched a lot of Dolphins pre-season tape

I'd be perfectly okay with Dunn as their kick returner. Ran a reported 4.22 at his pro day, and returned 10 kickoffs for 4 TDs last season at Utah. Shocked

About time. If they're going to keep that stiff Green around, they might as well bring in his teammate that's actually talented (if hurt).

I wouldn't want to see the team bring in a kickoff return specialist. It's a waste of a gameday active 46 spot.

Maybe 10 years ago but the rules change plus (in general) kickers having a bit stronger legs than decades past, I just don't see the value. Not on a team that uses so many situational/role players on offense and defense.

Yeah, they'd have to find some other role for him. In theory, that wouldn't be too hard because he's super fast and shifty, but he's also small and doesn't know the offense right now.
