The Patriots announced the signing of free-agent punter David King, a former Australian rules football player.
The Patriots did not have a punter on their roster before signing King. It is likely that they will add a young prospect or veteran free agent to the mix at some point.
Editor's note: Some erroneous information on King's background was distributed and originally posted in this spot Wednesday. We have taken down that information and posted updated, accurate information here. We apologize for the error.
