Patriots and Giants among NFL teams interested in former Bills WR-special-teams ace Marcus Easley now that he's 100 percent healthy, according to league sources

Easley broke his knee in multiple places in 2015 and since then has not played in an NFL game.
With only three receptions for 7 yards and a touchdown, Easley’s strong suit has always been the third phase of the game where he has recorded 50 tackles and has caused two forced fumbles.
Easley has also visited the Pittsburgh Steelers and with the Patriots interested in the 30-year old, it could be yet another sign that fan-favorite Matthew Slater may be on his way out.
