Patriots sign WR David Patten

The Patrriots announced the signing of veteran wide receiver David Patten today.

Patten, who turns 36 in August and was with New England from 2001-2004, did not play in the NFL last season after he was cut by the Cleveland Browns following training camp.

His last action came with the New Orleans Saints in 2008 when he appeared in five games and had 11 receptions for 162 yards and one touchdown. In 2007, Patten had enjoyed a nice comeback season with the Saints in catching 54 passes for 792 yards and three touchdowns.

More on this to come.
