Report: Patriots try out TE Scaife

The Patriots tried out tight end Bo Scaife, according to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com and the Carroll County Times.

Scaife, 31, is a veteran of seven NFL seasons, including six with the Titans (2005-2010). He has played in 90 career games, making 62 starts. The 6-foot-3, 249-pound Scaife posted career highs in 2008, with 58 receptions for 561 yards and two touchdowns.

The workout is another sign of the Patriots attempting to manage personnel at the tight end position, with Rob Gronkowski and Daniel Fells not practicing in last Thursday's organized team activity. The Patriots also had veteran tight end Dallas Clark in for a visit recently before he signed with the Buccaneers.

Undrafted rookie Nick Melillo was signed on Tuesday, giving the team three healthy tight ends on the roster, with Aaron Hernandez and rookie Brad Herman also in the fold.
