FOXBORO - The Patriots worked out tight end Jake Byrne on Monday. The 6-4, 260-pounder came out of Wisconsin in 2011. He spent training camp this year with the New Orleans Saints after going undrafted.

Byrne, 22, was diagnosed with diabetes in high school. He had six catches in 50 games at Wisconsin.

He is seen as primarily a blocking tight end.
