Pats sign Forston to future deal

A day after signing seven of their eight practice squad players to a reserve/future deals, the New England Patriots signed the last one, adding defensive lineman Marcus Forston to the fold with a reserve/future deal.

The deal amounts to a free agent contract for Forston, who was originally signed by the team as an undrafted free agent last offseason.

Terms were not disclosed, but most reserve/future deals are two years in length.

Forston has bounced back and forth between the active roster and practice squad, giving the team depth along the interior of the defensive line.
