FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- While the Patriots have yet to formally announce the roster moves, wide receiver Darnell Jenkins and quarterback Jeff Rowe were spotted in the locker room this morning, both players presumably added to the practice squad.
The Patriots had one open spot on the practice squad after wide receiver Terrence Nunn was signed away by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last month, but would need to make a corresponding move to add the second player.
Jenkins is a 5-10 receiver, who was undrafted out of the University of Miami. He appeared in one game with the Texans last season and did not record a reception. He has also spent time with the Browns and Buccaneers.
Rowe is a 6-5 quarterback, who was drafted by the Bengals in the fifth round (151th overall) of the 2007 draft. Rowe served as Cincinnati's third-string QB his rookie season, then landed on the team's practice squad in 2008, where he was claimed by the Seahawks last December.
Jenkins took over both Nunn's No. 10 jersey and his locker. Rowe had a No. 9 jersey in his stall and occupies the locker next to former practice squad quarterback (turned active wide receiver) Isaiah Stanback.
