Wide receiver Mark Clayton will work out for the Patriots on Friday, according to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com.

The 29-year-old Clayton is a former  first-round pick of the Ravens out of from Oklahoma who was traded to the Rams last year. Clayton has made a solid recovery from tearing his patellar tendon in his right knee last year and is on the verge of being ready to play again.

In his career, Clayton has 257 catches and 3,422 yards and 14 touchdowns. He has been able to contribute to every team, even though he has not stood out like he was projected too from OU.

The Patriots have worked out a number of receivers in the past couple of days, and has left analysts speculating if Bill Belichick is just doing his "due diligence" or looking for more weapons on offense. As more details are released I will post an update.
