Sammy Morris Thinks Josh Reed Could Be the Next ‘Big’ Thing in New England

Sammy Morris played with Josh Reed with the Buffalo Bills for two seasons, and the Patriots' running back thinks the free-agent wide receiver could have a tremendous impact in New England’s offense, the Boston Herald reports.

"I know Josh well," Morris told the Herald. "He'd be really big for our team. He's a tough guy."

The Patriots hosted Reed for a visit earlier this month, but the wideout left New England without a contract.

The Patriots need more depth at receiver, and a combination of Reed, Julian Edelman and David Patten could help replace Wes Welker's production as New England’s No. 2 receiver. In addition, the eight-year veteran could provide leadership on offense.

Morris wants his former Bills teammate to join him in New England, but understands his words will have a minimal impact on Reed’s decision.  

"It's not a matter of talking to him," Morris said. "It's really just a matter of getting things worked out."
