As they manage some injuries at receiver, the Patriots had veteran Eric Decker in for a workout Monday, per @FieldYates. Decker played for Josh McDaniels in Denver, and thus has some background in the system.

The Patriots are dealing with a few injuries at the position with Kenny Britt, Malcolm Mitchell and Jordan Matthews all battling ailments.
As stated in the tweet above, Decker formerly played for Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels when he was the head coach for the Broncos and could find his way onto the roster because of his versatility to play in the slot as well as outside the numbers.
