The Patriots are ready to get the 2013 season underway, but, while their roster is pretty much set for Week 1, they’re still taking a look at who’s available on the free agent market. The Patriots worked out 11 free agents at Gillette Stadium on Friday, according to ESPN’s Field Yates, including three quarterbacks and former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer. Dwyer is the headliner of the group, considering he was the Steelers’ feature back at the end of the 2012 season. He won the starting job in Week 7 after both Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman failed to give the running game any sort of spark. Dwyer carried the ball 156 times for 623 yards and two touchdowns on the year. He posted a pair of back-to-back 100-yard games in his first two starts but struggled to carry the load the rest of the season. Former Packers quarterbacks Graham Harrell and B.J. Coleman were also in for visits on Friday. The other quarterback was Austin Davis, who went undrafted out of Souther...

Is A Reunion With Jonathan Dwyer Even A Possibility?

By Matthew Marczi With Le’Veon Bell not expected to be ready to play for at least another week or two and, more significantly, the news that LaRod Stephens-Howling suffered a torn ACL, it begs the question, is a reunion with Jonathan Dwyer even an option at this point for the Pittsburgh Steelers?
