Houshmandzadeh to meet with Patriots

Free agent WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh is scheduled to meet with the New England Patriots, according to a league source.

Houshmandzadeh, 33, played in 16 games for the Ravens last season, and put up the lowest numbers of his career — 30 receptions, 398 yards — since his rookie season with the Bengals in 2001.

He has two 1,000-yard seasons in his career, and had a career-high 112 receptions with the Bengals in 2007. He played with the Seahawks in 2009 following eight seasons with the Bengals.

The Patriots have a young group of receivers behind veterans Wes Welker, Deion Branch and Chad Ochocinco, a longtime teammate of Houshmandzadeh, who they acquired in late July for a pair of late-round picks.
