Pascoe, 30, spent five seasons with the Giants before joining the Falcons in 2014. Last year, Pascoe was out of the NFL until he hooked on with the Lions in December on 2015. A sixth-round pick of the 49ers in 2009, Pascoe has totaled 40 receptions and two touchdowns in the NFL.

The Patriots already seem to have a full group at tight end with Rob Gronkowski, Martellus Bennett, A.J. Derby, and Clay Harbor. In recent weeks, Derby seems to have leapfrogged Harbor and he may join Pascoe in free agency soon.
