The Patriots brought in Ellington and former Washington Redskin wide receiver Maurice Hill for workouts today and likely deemed the former Texan a better fit due to his slot ability.
The Patriots now have six listed wide receivers in Julian Edelman, Braxton Berrios, Damoun Patterson, Phillip Dorsett, Bruce Ellington, and Matthew Slater.
