Ohrnberger to try out for Giants

Former Patriots offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger -- probably known more for his antics on Twitter than for his play on the field -- will soon try out for the Giants, he tweeted.

Checking in at mini-camp for a tryout with the NY Giants.. Hopefully my rigorous off-season regime of hot yoga and calisthenics pays off. Rich Ohrnberger (@ohrnberger) May 10, 2012
Ohnberger was drafted in the fourth round by the Patriots in 2009 and was mostly a practice squad player until he was released last season.

He might be a longshot to make the Giants, but any opportunity to mention Ohrnberger and his tweets is an opportunity for laughs. So, by all means, check out what @ohrnberger has had to say over the last few months. But beware: He likes to take photos of himself in his underwear.

Don't say we didn't warn you.

Patriots place Vincent Valentine on IR, promote Geneo Grissom

FOXBORO -- Anyone hoping to see Vincent Valentine make his season debut got some bad news Friday. 

Valentine, who has been inactive for both of the Patriots' first two games with a knee injury, was placed on injured reserve. ESPN's Field Yates was first to report the news.

With Valentine on IR, Geneo Grissom was added to the roster from the practice squad. ESPN's Mike Reiss had that one first:

Valentine, whom the Pats chose 96th overall in 2016, has not been practicing with the team as he's dealt with the knee injury.

A third-round pick of the Pats in 2015, Grissom was released by the team in September and signed to the practice squad a day later.
