The Patriots and UFA TE Visanthe Shiancoe will meet on Thursday, NFL.com's Steve Wyche reported Wednesday.

Shiancoe, 32, caught 36 passes for 409 yards and three TDs for the Vikings in 2011. Shiancoe was ranked No. 76 among PFW's top 100 free agents of 2012.

The Patriots have an elite TE tandem in Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, and all told, they have six tight ends currently on the roster. However, that includes ex-Giant Jake Ballard, who's coming off a knee injury and is a candidate to miss some or all of the 2012 season.

Shiancoe turned down a one-year contract offer from the Seahawks earlier in the offseason, ESPN1500.com in Minneapolis reported.
