The Patriots are always updating their lists in case of emergency by bringing in players for workouts, but the ones early this week will get a little more attention given what has taken place at the kicker position this season. 

Listen to your team news NOW.

According to multiple reports, the team hosted kickers Nick Folk, Greg Joseph, Austin MacGinnis and Giorgio Tavecchio, as well as punter Austin Rehkow for workouts early this week.

Folk is the biggest name, as the 34-year-old has kicked for three NFL teams, most recently Tampa Bay in 2017.

It does not appear like these are related to the performance of Mike Nugent at all, simply the team preparing in case of emergency.
