New England Patriots Work Out "Two Notable Free Agent Running Backs"

The New England Patriots have been actively exploring options to strengthen their running back corps for the upcoming season.

In their search, they have reportedly worked out free agent running backs Darrell Henderson Jr. and Leonard Fournette.

Henderson, a former Los Angeles Rams player, showcased his skills during his four-year stint, accumulating over 1,700 rushing yards and showcasing his receiving abilities.

Meanwhile, Fournette, a Super Bowl winner with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, brings valuable experience and a productive 2020 season under his belt, with over 500 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

With their interest in both Henderson and Fournette, the Patriots are looking to add depth and talent to their running back rotation.

While Rhamondre Stevenson already provides promise as a potential bell-cow back, the team's consideration of these options suggests a desire to strengthen the position further.

Henderson's workout signifies the team's willingness to explore multiple avenues, while Fournette's proven success and versatility in the passing game make him an intriguing addition.

Ultimately, whether the Patriots decide to sign Henderson, Fournette, or pursue other options, their efforts indicate a commitment to bolstering their backfield for the upcoming season.

Adding experienced and skilled running backs would not only provide depth but also potentially alleviate the workload on Stevenson, allowing him to maintain a significant role in the offense.

As the NFL season approaches, these workouts and potential signings will continue to shape the Patriots' running back corps and their overall offensive strategy. Photo Credit:  Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports
