The New England Patriots were busy working out three more players at Gillette Stadium on Wednesday.

ESPN's Mike Reiss reported the Patriots worked out tight end/fullback Orson Charles, fullback Ricky Ortiz and running back/fullback George Aston.

All three of these players have experience playing fullback, which is notable when you consider the Patriots have placed fullbacks James Develin and Jakob Johnson on injured reserve in recent weeks.

It's been a busy week for the Patriots from a roster perspective.

The team made several roster transactions on Tuesday, including the addition of veteran tight end Benjamin Watson just a week after he was released. The Patriots also waived third-string quarterback Cody Kessler and suspended defensive lineman Michael Bennett one game for conduct detrimental to the team.

There could be more roster turnover over the coming weeks with the NFL trade deadline set for Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 4 p.m. ET.
