Riders receiver Jordan Williams-Lambert works out for the New England Patriots

Receiver Jordan Williams-Lambert worked out for the New England Patriots on Friday, per NFL sources.

Williams-Lambert has already worked out for the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions and New York Giants.

NFL interest has come for Williams-Lambert after a first CFL season in which he caught 62 passes for 764 yards and four touchdowns for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. The impressive campaign led to Williams-Lambert being named the West Division Most Oustanding Rookie.

After filing a grievance, Williams-Lambert was granted the opportunity to work out and potentially sign with NFL teams.

The 24-year-old went unselected in the 2016 NFL Draft out of Ball State University – recording 200 receptions for 2,723 yards and 24 touchdowns in 44 NCAA games with the Cardinals – but inked an undrafted free agent contract with the New Orleans Saints where he spent the 2016 season on the practice roster. The Saints waived Williams-Lambert during training camp when an injury settlement was reached.

New England recently lost Riders neg list receiver Josh Gordon from football action. The Patriots could use a similar big-bodied – six-foot-three, 228 pound – pass catcher such as Williams-Lambert.

Williams-Lambert seems to be trending towards earning an NFL contract.
