Patriots sign WR Anthony Gonzalez

The Patriots on Saturday announced the signing of free agent wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez, formerly of the Colts.

A first-round draft selection of the Colts in 2007, Gonzalez has been limited to a total of 11 games played over the past three seasons, due to multiple injuries. Gonzalez played in eight games last season but did not record a reception.

In his first two seasons in Indianapolis, however, Gonzalez played 29 games, making 11 starts. In 2008, he had a career-high 57 catches for 664 yards and four touchdowns.

At 6-feet and 193 pounds, the 27-year old Gonzalez was considered a top slot receiver coming out of Ohio State.
