Patriots TE Michael Hoomanawanui signed his one-year restricted free agent tender on Monday, in time to participate in the start of the team's offseason program while under contract.

The one year deal will pay Hoomanawanui $1.323 million for the upcoming season after he was tendered at the original-round level.

After being signed off of the Redskins practice squad early during the 2012 season, the 24-year old played in 14 games for the Patriots, catching five passes for a total of 109 yards.
