The Eagles may avoid blaming touchdown catches on Bradley Fletcher moving forward. The Patriots worked out Fletcher on Tuesday, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston.

Fletcher drew the ire of fans last season for consistently getting beat in coverage. A two-year starter for Philadelphia, Fletcher was a pretty consistent underachiever. While he showed flashes in games, he also held routinely and constantly let quicker receivers get behind him.

In New England, Fletcher would compete with Kyle Arrington and Malcolm Butler for a starting spot. Fletcher has plenty of starting experience and was a quality nickel corner for the Rams prior to signing with Philadelphia. He also was terrific on special teams at times during his tenure with the Eagles.

The Eagles currently have Byron Maxwell, Walter Thurmond, Jaylen Watkins, Brandon Boykin and Nolan Carroll at cornerback. The team could look to upgrade the depth at the position in the upcoming NFL Draft.
