Report: Patriots will try out free-agent safety Taylor Mays

The Patriots are pretty well set at the safety spot, but that won't keep them from seeking out potential fits for their training camp roster.

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, veteran free-agent safety Taylor Mays will be given a tryout by the Patriots at the team's rookie minicamp. 

Mays was taken in the second round out of USC by the 49ers back in 2010, and he started six games as a rookie at strong safety. In the run-up to the 2011 season, Mays was traded to the Bengals for a future seventh-round pick. He spent the next four seasons with Cincinnati.

In 2015, Mays bounced from the Vikings to the Lions to the Raiders. He was cut before the start of the regular season but re-signed with Oakland in September of that year and played in 14 games, starting five. 

The Bengals re-signed Mays last offseason, but he was released in July as he was facing an eight-game suspension to start the year after incurring multiple substance-abuse violations. 

Mays was an intriguing prospect coming out of USC as he measured in at 6-foot-3, 230 pounds, ran a 4.43-second 40-yard dash and jumped 41 inches in the vertical at the combine in 2010.

MONTREAL - Kelyn Rowe scored in stoppage time to give the New England Revolution a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Impact on Sunday in their regular-season finale.

Rowe, a late substitute, put a shot from 30 yards out just under the bar behind goalkeeper Max Crepeau moments after Montreal's Matteo Mancosu tied it with a 90th-minute goal.

Diego Fagundez and Krisztian Nemeth also scored for New England (13-15-6).

Patrice Bernier scored in his final game for Montreal (11-17-6).

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Diego Fagundez scored two goals in the second half and the New England Revolution beat 10-man New York City FC 2-1 on Sunday.

New England (12-15-6) set a club record with 12 wins at home. NYC (16-9-8) had several possibilities to clinch a bye in the playoffs but needed at least a draw.

Fagundez opened the scoring in the 51st minute and made it 2-0 in the second minute of stoppage time with his sixth goal of the season. Andrew Farrell set up the first goal by dribbling into the area and finding Fagundez at the top of the box. It was his first goal since June 3. Fagundez's next goal was a tap-in after his breakaway shot was knocked back to him.

Khiry Shelton scored for NYC in the third minute of extra time by getting past the defense for a long ball and heading it in.

NYC's Jack Harrison was shown a straight red card in the 26th minute for a late challenge on Teal Bunbury. It was Harrison's first red card of his professional career and he'll miss the regular-season finale against Columbus Crew SC next weekend.
