Patriots Work Out Justin Hunter

The Patriots worked out four wide receivers on Monday, according to Field Yates of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Free agents Nick Williams (Titans), Justin Hunter (Steelers), Papi White (Jaguars), and Travin Dural (Saints) all showed their stuff for the Pats, who will be without Julian Edelman for the next three weeks because of a thumb injury. 

Hunter seemed to hold serious promise when he entered the league as a second round pick of the Titans in 2013. Since then, he has spent time with three other teams, with the Steelers being the most recent of the bunch. He has managed just 14 catches with the Bills, Dolphins, and Steelers between 2017 and 2018. Last year, he did not see the field. His best season came most productive season came in 2014 when he had 28 catches for 498 yards and three scores with the Titans, though he did manage four TDs with Buffalo in 2016.

Hunter and the other players won’t have the easiest path towards making the Patriots’ final cut, but one of them may have an outside opportunity to hook on with the defending champs.

    this must mean Thomas will not make the team which doesn’t hurt the patriots that much

      Actually it means that Edelman has an injury that will keep him sidelined for a bit

    The Steelers gave Hunter a lot more chances than he probably deserved, and he didn’t do much with them.

      Yeah, that’s the Steelers though. Ben vs. Brady. That’s a no brainer for a WR. Brady will make you look like a star even if you’re not, Ben will blame you for why he looked bad.
