Patriots sign rookie OT Weems

The Patriots have signed rookie offensive tackle Darrion Weems.

Weems (6-foot-5, 302 pounds) was signed by the Vikings after going undrafted in April's draft. He was waived by Minnesota on Tuesday.

The 23-year old started 14 games last season as a senior at Oregon.

The Patriots had just 10 offensive linemen practicing on Thursday, which is light.
