Patriots Worked Out TEs Bear Pascoe & Steve Maneri

Mike Reiss of ESPN reports that the Patriots brought in free agent tight ends Bear Pascoe and Steve Maneri for workouts in recent days.

  • According to Reiss, these workouts were just of the Patriots’ process of keeping emergency lists up to date.

Pascoe, 29, is a former sixth-round pick of the 49ers back in 2009. He spent a number of year with the Giants before signing a one-year contract with the Falcons last year.

The Bears elected to sign him to a one-year contract this past April, but he was unfortunately among their final roster cuts.

In 2014, Pascoe appeared in all 16 games for the Falcons, but recorded just two receptions for three yards and a touchdown. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing 148 snaps last year to go along with a very respectable rating as a run-blocker.

Maneri, 27, began his career as an offensive tackle, but converted to a tight end in 2012 while playing for the Chiefs.

In his five seasons in the NFL, Maneri has spent time with the Texans, Patriots, Chiefs, Bears, Buccaneers, and the Jets. During his career, he has appeared in 24 total games and has recorded six catches for 62 yards.
