A familiar face may soon be spotted in the Patriots' revolving door at wide receiver:
The #Patriots may make another move at the receiver position: I’m told FA WR Kenny Britt is flying to Foxboro today to work out for the team on Monday, source says. If all goes well and his hamstring is healthy, he could sign in New England… again.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 16, 2018
Britt suffered a hamstring injury during OTA workouts in the spring and never was able to fully participate in training camp. Still, his release in late August was a surprise, given how thin the Pats are at the position.
The Patriots have been loading up on wideouts since releasing Britt, even bringing in two new ones earlier in the week. But one of them -- Bennie Fowler -- has already been cut loose, so obviously they're still looking for answers at the position. Now they'll see if Britt can come back and provide some.
Can Jordan Matthews and Malcolm Mitchell be far behind?
UPDATE: Maybe that last line wasn't such a joke:
