Mike Reiss of ESPN reports that the Patriots tried out former Raiders FB Marcel Reece on Friday.
The other players who worked out for the Patriots include G Jake Bernstein, G Chase Farris, C Robert Kugler and TE Greg Scruggs.
Reece just finished serving his four-game suspension, which dated back to last year, when he was cut loose by the Raiders earlier in the week.
Reece, 31, was in the final year of his four-year, $14.423 contract that included $7.2 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $2.6 million for the 2016 season when Oakland released him in a move that freed up $2,191,176 in available cap space.
In 2015, Reece appeared in 15 games for the Raiders and ran for 36 yards on 10 carries to go along with 30 receptions for 269 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
