Report: Arian Foster's Boston visit didn't include meeting with Patriots

While former Houston Texans running back Arian Foster made some social media waves - including his Instagram post from Fenway - with a visit to Boston on Friday, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports that his trip DID NOT include a visit with the Patriots.

Reiss writes: of now there is nothing of substance to relay on the topic. His trip to town didn't include a visit to Gillette Stadium to meet the club.

Jason Cole of Bleacher Report had the initial item about the Patriots "preliminary" interest in the running back.

Foster turns 30 in August and missed the final 12 games of 2015 with a torn Achilles. Here's CSN Patriots Insider Tom E. Curran's thoughts on Foster from when free agency began back in March.

Eric Ebron signs two-year deal with Colts

Former Lions tight end Eric Ebron is signing a two-year deal worth $15 million with the Colts, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Ebron was rumored to be a potential target for the Patriots, especially after new Pats running back Jeremy Hill tried recruiting him to the team.

The 24-year-old had 53 receptions for 574 yards and four touchdowns a season ago with Detroit.

Patriots release Shea McClellin

Shea McClellin will be blocking kicks for somebody else next season. 

The Patriots announced Monday they've released the veteran linebacker, ending his tenure with the team after two seasons.  ESPN's Field Yates broke the news.

The Pats signed McClellin to a three-year deal prior to the 2016 season, but that was the only season in which he played for the team. McClellin missed all of last season due to injury. Prior to coming to New England, McClellin played four seasons with the Bears, who chose him 19th overall in 2012. 

McClellin's biggest contribution with the Pats came when he blocked a Justin Tucker kick in Week 14 of the 2016 season against the Ravens.
