The Patriots completed a swap of practice squad wide receivers on Wednesday, re-signing Kerry Taylor to replace Sam Kirkland.
Taylor was claimed off waivers by the Patriots late last month, and was released during final cuts on Aug. 31. He also had a short stint on the Patriots' practice squad early last season.
Greg A. Bedard of the Boston Globe was the first to report the signing.
The practice squad is now at the eight-man limit.
