The New England Patriots have recently tried out free-agent RB Ronnie Brown (Chargers), RB Brian Leonard (Buccaneers), TE Ben Hartsock (Panthers) and TE Nate Byham (Buccaneers), according to a source.

  Panthers | Ben Hartsock to see more targets?    Tue Jun 18, 10:25 PM

Carolina Panthers TE Ben Hartsock spent most of his first nine seasons in the NFL clearing space for running backs and protecting quarterbacks, rarely getting any balls thrown his way. However, during minicamp, QB Cam Newton targeted Hartsock on a number of underneath routes and Hartsock did not have any noticeable drops.

Footballguys view: This could be a signal of more two tight end sets, which makes sense on a team that would be looking to run more and cover up for a shallow wide receiver corps. Hartsock doesn't have fantasy value, but he could take a sliver off of Greg Olsen's value if he is running more routes out of two tight ends sets.

  Panthers | Expected to add one more TE    Wed May 1, 07:36 PM
