The Pats presumably saw enough of Hawkins and Ashford to come to the conclusion that they would not make the roster, so the use of training camp as a place to tryout for the team continues. If you are one of those that want the Pats to get bigger at WR, then you will like Tuinei: he is 6'4", 220 pounds. Agent: New England Patriots sign former Oregon WR Lavasier Tuinei | masslive.com The New England Patriots continue to search for answers at wide receiver. One day after parting ways with Lavelle Hawkins and Perez Ashford, the Patriots plugged one of the holes by signing former University of Oregon wide receiver Lavasier Tuinei, according to his agency. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Tuinei spent time last year on the Seattle Seahawks practice squad and caught one pass for eight yards during the preseason. He was released by Dallas Cowboys last week after failing a conditioning test. Tuinei, 22, also spent some time with the Cincinnati Bengals this offseason but was waived in April with a non-football injury designation. Over three seasons at Oregon, Tuinei caught 108 passes for 1,212 yards with 12 touchdowns. Agent: WR Tuinei agrees with Pats - espnBoston - Field Yates The Patriots are down to just one open roster spot, as they have agreed to terms with former Oregon wide receiver Lavasier Tuinei, according to his agency, Paradigm Sports Management. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Tuinei had 108 career catches for 1,212 yards and 12 touchdowns during three college seasons at Oregon, the last of which came in 2011. He signed on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2012, spending time on the team's practice squad that season. He was signed by the Bengals to a reserve/future contract following the 2012 season, before later being waived. He subsequently spent time with the Dallas Cowboys. The Patriots now have 11 wide receivers on the roster after letting go of both Lavelle Hawkins and Perez Ashford on Wednesday While it is true that the Pats do now have 11 wide receivers on the roster, that is a slightly misleading number because neither Julian Edelman nor Mark Harrison are currently participating in practices.
