Still no official word from the front office, but it appears the Patriots have acquired their third wide receiver this offseason. Former Cincinnati Bengal Kelley Washington reportedly is New England's latest free agent signing. So says ESPN.com, The Boston Globe, NFL.com, the Boston Herald, *and *The Providence Journal.
The Herald has a particularly optimistic column about the Patriots prospects in 2007, while the Patriot Ledger *is still focused on the signing of Donte' Stallworth (which has yet to be announced by the team). The Globe* also notes that Pats scouts are in Miami to give a Hurricane linebacker a look.
