A former 49ers, Texans and Lions wideout, Ellington spent several weeks with the Patriots in the spring. But the defending Super Bowl champions released him shortly after the draft. This marks Ellington’s first known workout for a team since.
Philadelphia remains deep at receiver, employing Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, DeSean Jackson and second-round pick J.J. Arcega-Whiteside. Former Ellington Houston teammate Braxton Miller resides on the Eagles’ roster, as do third-year wideout Mack Hollins and former Viking-turned-AAF standout Charles Johnson.
The Patriots signed Ellington in March, doing so after the slot player/return man spent 2018 with the Texans and Lions. Ellington’s most notable season came in 2017, when he posted 330 yards with the Texans.
