Tom E. Curran](http://www.csnne.com/new-england-patriots/qb-shaw-works-out-patriots) of CSNNE.com writes that South Carolina QB Connor Shaw worked out for the Patriots this week, according to a report.

"The 22-year-old was 26-5 as a starter for the Gamecocks," adds Curran. "He had 24 touchdown passes and one pick as a senior.
