    Pats Workout Spicer & Askew

    The Patriots have worked out former Jacksonville defensive end Paul Spicer (95) and ex-Denver defensive tackle Matthias Askew. The 34-year-old Spicer is 6-foot-4 and 295 pounds, and has bounced around professional football for the better part of the decade, playing in the NFL, CFL and NFL Europe.

    An undrafted free agent who started his professional career with the Seahawks in 1998, his best season came in 2005 with the Jaguars when he accumulated 37 tackles (30 solo), 7.5 sacks, and two pass deflections. In his NFL career, he has 252 tackles, 28 1/2 sacks and one interception in 10 years in the NFL. Spicer was cut by New Orleans on Sept. 5 during the final major roster cut down.

    Askew is a 27-year-old defensive tackle who was taken in the fourth round of the 2004 Draft out of Michigan State. At 6-foot-5 and 302 pounds, he too has bounced around the league, going from Cincinnati to Washington to Denver, where the Broncos waived him as part of their final cuts before the start of the 2009 season.
