Free Agent DT Ego Ferguson Also Trying Out For Patriots

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Patriots have invited five players to take part in their minicamp on a tryout basis. This group consists of DT Ego Ferguson and S Taylor Mays, among others.

Ferguson, 25, was taken in the second round of the 2014 NFL draft. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $4,113,203 contract and stands to make a base salary of $980,892 for the 2017 season.

Chicago elected to waive him with an injury designation at the start of the season and he was later placed on injured reserve after clearing waivers

The Bears officially moved on from Ferguson last month before he was later claimed by the Packers and cut loose soon after. Green Bay cut him loose just two days later with a failed physical designation.

In 2015, Ferguson appeared in four games for the Bears and recorded just three tackles before he was placed on injured reserve.
