The New England Patriots worked out former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer, former New York Jets nose guard Sione Fua and former Green Bay Packers quarterback B.J. Coleman, according to a league source.

The Patriots also tried out quarterbacks Graham Harrell and Austin Davis.

None were immediately signed.

Besides those players, the Patriots also tried out former Baltimore Ravens running back Damien Berry, wide receiver Chad Bumphus, running back Cameorn Marshell, defensive tackle Clinton McDonald and nose guard Andre Neblett.

The Patriots reached an injury settlement with wide receiver Kamar Aiken, removing him from injured reserve.

 

 

Other than the fact they got his former team wrong  lol

Patriots are ruthless. They sign a guy one day. If he doesn't impress, 24hrs later they cut their ass.

The next time Gettis takes a poo, we'll have a thread about it.

A little more info...

 

Saw that the original source for the info on Fua's tryout was Ravens Insider guy Aaron Wilson.  Shocked me that he'd screw that up.  He's always been pretty good.

 

So I looked it up on his Twitter and found his original page on NFP (link) which says this:

Near as I can figure, Yahoo screwed it up when they copied it.  Which is odd, given all they really had to do was cut and paste :unsure:

I thought that too when I saw Aaron Wilson.  Maybe it was a typo that was later corrected on NFP after Yahoo cut and paste it or maybe Yahoo just fugged it up somehow

 

Thanks for clearing that up though

I'll miss Anderson Russell more than Gettis

I understand it's probably different depending on the player. What does one of these "Injury Settlement" type payments generally end up being? (Average Dollar Value) I was just curious. Does the player have any leverage? Is it a negotiated settlement? I would imagine there has to be some type of guideline or scale outlined in the CBA.

 

Go Panthers!
