Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsThe New England Patriots are on the move. For the second time this free agency period and after adding running back Brandon Bolden earlier this week, the defending world champions have brought in an outside player to bolster their team: according to a report by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, New England has signed wide receiver Bruce Ellington to a one-year contract after previously bringing him in for a workout.Ellington has seen quite a lot of the NFL since getting drafted in the fourth round in 2014: he started his career with the San Francisco 49ers before joining the New York Jets for a couple of days in the summer of 2017. The 5’9, 200 lbs wideout then was picked up by the Houston Texans to play on a team led by former Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien. In 14 games in O’Brien’s system, he caught 37 passes for 422 yards and three touchdowns.During his second season in the AFC South, in 2018, Ellington was placed on injured reserve and subsequently released off the list again. The Detroit Lions picked then picked him up and he went on to appear in four games for the team. Before his release in February, the 27-year-old caught 23 passes for the club coached by ex-Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia for a combined 132 yards.All in all, he finished the 2018 season with 31 receptions for 224 yards and one touchdown. While the numbers per se are not spectacular Youth Byron Cowart Jersey , and Ellington is not the same caliber of big-name receiver like Golden Tate or Randall Cobb, he adds speed an experience in a Patriots-like system. Most importantly, though, he is another option behind Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman and recently re-signed Phillip Dorsett.Furthermore, Ellington has experience as a kick returner. Over the course of his career, he ran back 48 punts for 372 yards and a 7.8 average, as well as 50 kickoffs for 1,279 yards and an average of 25.6 yards per runback.[UPDATE] ESPN’s Mike Reiss has the contract details. The New England Patriots have a busy three days behind them. On Sunday, the won their seventh game of the year by defeating the Green Bay Packers 31-71. On Monday Womens Byron Cowart Jersey , they signed linebacker Ufomba Kamalu to the practice squad and had free agent linebacker Albert McClellan in for a visit. On Tuesday, they made six transactions including signing McClellan and former second-round draft pick Obi Melifonwu.The Patriots were not done, though, as they also hosted two more free agents on visits (via ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss):RB Josh FergusonIllinois’ Josh Ferguson joined the Indianapolis Colts after going undrafted in 2016. The versatile receiving back made the team and went on to appear in all of its 16 games that year, finishing with 35 offensive touches for 156 yards from scrimmage. 2017 and 2018 went differently, however: Ferguson was placed on injured reserve both times and later let go. But while he re-joined the Colts last year — he went on to appear in 10 games, primarily on special teams — Ferguson did not this year. Instead he was signed to the Houston Texans’ practice squad last month. One week later, he was on the open market again.OT Menelik WatsonA second-round draft pick in 2013, Menelik Watson spent the entirety of his four-year rookie contract with the Oakland Raiders. After seeing irregular playing time in Oakland Authentic Byron Cowart Jersey , the 6’5, 315 lbs lineman signed a three-year contract with the Denver Broncos in 2017. He earned a starting spot at right tackle but saw his season come to an end in early November because he hurt his calf. The 29-year old also was placed on injured reserve earlier this year — he suffered a pectoral injury — and was ultimately released by the Broncos in early September.None of the two should be expected to join the Patriots’ 53-man roster immediately, but with Ferguson being practice squad eligible he could be used to bolster depth there. After all, New England just released running back Kenneth Farrow off its scout team yesterday. Watson, meanwhile, appears to be an emergency call-up option. With Brian Schwenke going on injured reserve and Cole Croston getting released (he might re-join the practice squad), having someone potentially available could pay dividends.
