Turner was waived by the Patriots on Friday, Christopher Price of the Boston Sports Journal reports.
Turner recorded nine receptions for 126 yards in his rookie season with the Eagles last year. Despite an unimpressive Patriots wide receiver corps behind Julian Edelman (suspension) and Chris Hogan, Turner was not able to carve out a spot on the 53-man roster. If Turner clears waivers, he'll attempt to sign elsewhere as a depth receiver or special teams option.
Turner last saw the field during the regular season in 2016 with the Eagles, recording nine receptions for 126 yards as a rookie. After being waived by the Saints in late June, he will try his hand with a Patriots club sporting a group of unimpressive wideouts behind Julian Edelman -- who is suspended to begin the season. However, Turner will likely aim to serve as more of a special-teams player.
Turner was waived by the Saints on Thursday, Nick Underhill of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports.
Turner has spent the offseason with the Saints after being picked up back in January. If he clears waivers he'll be a free agent able to sign with any team as he looks to hang on to a depth receiver and special teams slot in 2018.
