The New England Patriots worked out former Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills wide receiver David Nelson, according to a league source.

Nelson tore his anterior cruciate ligament last year and had a bone bruise that hampered him in training camp with the Browns prior to being released.

Nelson was sidelined all of last season after catching 61 passes for 658 yards and five touchdowns in 2011. For his career, he has 94 receptions for 1,042 yards and eight touchdowns.

The Patriots also worked out former Tampa Bay Bucccaneers third-round cornerback Myron Lewis, who last played for the Detroit Lions. Lewis played in 29 games with one start in Tampa Bay, recording 17 tackles and four pass deflections.

He played collegiately at Vanderbilt where he earned All-Southeastern Conference second-team honors, registering 170 tackles, 26 passes defensed, 10 1/2 tackles for loss, five sacks, two forced fumbles, two fumbles recoveries and 10 interceptions for 71 yards.

The Patriots also tried out defensive backs Jalil Brown, DeQuan Menzie and Peyton Thompson and wide receivers Jared Green, the son of Washington Redskins Hall of Fame cornerback Darrell Green, Sam McGuffie and Terrence Toliver.
