FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - The New England Patriots have signed tight end Matthew Mulligan.
Mulligan was released on Saturday by the Green Bay Packers after signing as a free agent in April. He spent the 2008 season on Miami's practice squad after joining the Dolphins as a rookie free agent out of Maine. He played the next three seasons with the New York Jets and last season with the St. Louis Rams.
Primarily a blocker, Mulligan had eight catches in 16 games last season. In his career, he has 14 catches for 144 yards and one touchdown in 50 games.
The Patriots also signed rookie tackles Jordan Devey and R.J. Dill to the practice squad. Both were released last Friday, Devey by the Baltimore Ravens and Dill by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
