Patriots Schedule Private Workout For TE

The New England Patriots would appear to be fine at tight end if they just re-signed Christian Fauria who is set to become a free agent shortly. Yet some recent rumors swirling around the future of Dan Graham have some wondering if New England is looking for more than just a stopgap solution. That would appear to be the case now that Patriots Insider has confirmed the team has scheduled a private work out with one TE. Get inside for an interview with this potential addition to the team.

After scouting Wisconsin tight end Jason Pociask at the Badgers' Pro Day Wednesday, the New England Patriots have scheduled a more extensive interview with the Big 10 standout for March 14, Patriots Insider has learned.

He will also speak with the Dallas Cowboys on March 20 and is planning to meet with the Falcons.

Pociask checked in yesterday at 264 pounds.

He also recorded a 36-inch vertical jump, a 4.73-second 40-yard dash,a 4.24-second 20-yard shuttle, a 12-second 60-yard shuttle.

"I'm sure I surprised some people today," said Pociask. "Hopefully I opened some eyes today. I've got a couple of more workouts coming up with some other teams, but I'm just glad I've got this one behind me."

Last season for the Badgers, the Plainfield, Indiana native caught seven passes for 79 yards.

"I should be setting something up with the Falcons and I've got the Patriots coming up next Tuesday and the Cowboys coming up that following Monday," Pociask added.
