The Patriots already have two of the best tight ends in the game with Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. Today they will be exploring the possibilities of adding a third tight end to the mix. Former Minnesota Vikings TE Visanthe Shiancoe will be in today visiting. The Pats are just going to put 3 tight ends on the field at one time! Gronk is still recovering from and injury and this could be some insurance at the position. It would not be surprising to see the Pats offer him a contract.

Topics: Patriots, Rob Gronkowski, Visanthe Shiancoe
