The New England Patriots have brought in wide receiver Donte Moncrief, wide receiver Darius Jennings, and defensive tackle Ryan Glasgow for Covid-19 testing, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss, beginning their workout process.
For the most part, midseason workouts are done as a way to keep emergency lists updated. This group however has a couple of players with serious NFL experience.
Moncrief, 27, is a former third round pick who has spent time with the Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Carolina Panthers, and Pittsburgh Steelers. Through the course of his six seasons, the 6-foot-2, 215-pound receiver has accumulated 204 receptions, for 2,561 yards and 21 touchdowns. His last stop was on the New York Jets practice squad, which he was released from on October 14th.
Jennings, 28, is a 3 year NFL veteran whose career began as an undrafted free agent with the Cleveland Browns in 2015. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound slot receiver later signed with the Tennessee Titans in 2018, where he spent two seasons. Between his active roster stints he’s spent time on the Browns, Titans, Chicago Bears, New York Jets, and Los Angeles Chargers practice squads. He has 27 receptions for 235 yards over his 28 game career.
Glasgow, 6-foot-3, 300 pounds, is a defensive tackle who has spent three seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals where he played in 24 games. He was a fourth round pick in 2017, and has also spent time on the Houston Texans practice squad, where he was released from on October, 20th.
The Patriots currently have a full 53-man roster even with Julian Edelman headed to injured reserve, with 14 of their 16 practice squad spots filled.
