Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and defensive end Rob Ninkovich, who played for the Patriots in the early 1990s, will work out with equipment manager Joe Paterno at the Patriots Training Facility.
Paternofice and the Patriots have been working with equipment suppliers since January.
Patorn of course had a strong relationship with Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
In 2011, the Patriots made a major investment in a new locker room in Gillette Stadium.
The team had a successful season and went to the Super Bowl that season.
The Patriots went on to win the Superbowl.
Patington also worked for the Packers, who are now in Green Bay.
The Packers had a fantastic run in the 1990s and the team’s success in the 2000s.
Kraft and Paterna both attended the Green Bay Packers training camp last year and the organization is planning to bring Paterson to the Patriots facility.
The New England Patriots signed tight end Marcedes Lewis to a four-year contract last month.
Lewis had three years left on his contract after his rookie year.
Lewis caught 41 passes for 447 yards and three touchdowns.
He was the top receiving tight end in the NFL in 2013.
Lewis has one more year on his deal and is free to sign elsewhere.
