Looks like a previous Knight football player will be sporting nautical blue, new century silver, red and white.

Former University of Central Florida wide receiver J.J. Worton signed a contract with the New England Patriots Monday, according to the Orlando Sentinel.


The alumnus has been working with New England’s practice squad in Massachusetts after a contract with the St. Louis Rams expired, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

“New England was one of a handful of teams who originally expressed interest in Worton shortly after his doctor cleared him to compete again following a 2014 knee injury,” the Sentinel said.

Worton placed among UCF’s most successful receivers, completing 168 receptions for 2360 yards and 21 touchdowns through his college football career.
