This is the first reported interest in Vellano since he worked out for the Browns back in October.
Vellano, 27, signed on with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Maryland back in 2013. He was placed on waivers back in October before he was later added to the team’s practice squad.
Last year, Vellano has totaled six tackles and a sack over the course of 5 games.
In 2013, Vellano appeared in all 16 games and recorded 54 tackles, two sacks, a fumble recovery and a pass defense for the Patriots’ defense.
