Even though the Patriots were busy preparing for the Texans, the team still had some players in for free agent workouts on Friday.

According to ESPN’s Mike Reiss and Field Yates, the team had veteran defensive end Lamarr Houston, along with receiver Corey "Philly" Brown, defensive tackle Stefan Charles and receiver Tavarres King in for workouts.

Houston stands out, as he was drafted by the Raiders in the second round of the 2010 draft. In his seven years in the league, he’s totaled 25 sacks. 

He has spent the last three seasons in Chicago with the Bears, but played just two games last season. He’s had a history of knee issues over the years, which is the main reason for his decreased production of late. In 2014 he tore his ACL celebrating a sack against the Patriots at Gillette Stadium.

These workouts of late seem to indicate the team still feels it can upgrade at the defensive end spot.
