The New England Patriots announced that they have signed restricted free agent CB Malcolm Butler and exclusive rights free agent TE . Terms of the contracts were not announced. In addition, the Patriots released OL Tre’ Jackson.

They are contracts teams use to sign players who are not on NFL rosters to finish the prior season in order to get them under contract for the upcoming year. For the most part they are used for teams to lock up guys from their practice squad for the following season. They are technically reserve/futures contracts that don’t actually begin until the new league year – which is March 9 for the 2017 season. But sometimes they are used to bring in veterans early in the process who for whatever reason aren’t under contract with a team, as was the case for the Patriots in the past with Dion Lewis and, this year, tight end .

Bennett’s apparent departure (he’s yet to sign with another club as of 10:30 a.m. Eastern Thursday) leaves a bit of a void on New England’s tight end depth chart. The Patriots currently have Gronkowski and Rob Housler under contract. Housler signed a future contract last month, which takes effect starting at 4 p.m. today. But the Patriots reportedly sought to address Bennett’s impending departure by trading with Indianapolis for veteran Dwayne Allen.

Peterson’s nickname was derived from his time spent as a high school and college running back, first in Palestine, Texas and then at the University of Oklahoma. It refers directly to his one-time ability to play and to run the ball “all day” long, something he basically did pre-injuries while with the Minnesota Vikings.

Still, even after his ACL and MCL reconstruction, Peterson was named the NFL MVP and Offensive Player of the Year in 2012, nearly topping Eric Dickerson’s single-season rushing mark with 2097 yards on the ground, while averaging six yards per carry. He’s led the league in total rushing yards three times, and in average yards per game four times.

Lenmgel, 25, originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with the Cincinnati Bengals out of Eastern Kentucky on May 8, 2015. The 6-foot-7, 266-pounder, was released by Cincinnati on Sept. 5, 2015 and spent his rookie season on the Bengals practice squad. Lengel began the 2016 season with Cincinnati and was released at the end of training camp before being signed to the practice squad on Sept. 4, 2016. Lengel played in 37 games during his college career at Eastern Kentucky and registered 33 receptions for 361 yards.

“I actually didn’t get overwhelmed with that,” said tight end Matt Lengel, who’s appearing in his first Super Bowl. “I’m glad I didn’t have to say ‘no’ too many times.”
Some players, like running back LeGarrette Blount, leave such uncomfortable responsibilities to others in his family.

The New England Patriots jersey announced today that they have signed TE Matt Lengel to the 53-man roster from the Cincinnati practice squad. Terms of the contract were not announced. 

Ryan Allen has been named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week by the National Football League for his performance in the Patriots’ 27-0 victory over the Houston Texans last Thursday. It is the second time in Allen’s career that he has received an AFC Player of the Week Honor. He also won the award following his performance in a 2014 Week 14 win at the San Diego Chargers.

Allen punted seven times for 333 yards (47.6 average) and placed six of his punts inside the opponent 20-yard line. He placed punts at the 11, 10, 10, 14, 5 and 4-yard lines while limiting the Texans to zero punt return yards. His only punt that did not land inside the 20 was downed at the 20-yard line. Ryan’s previous best was five punts inside the opponent 20-yard line on Oct. 6, 2013, at Cincinnati. Allen, whose longest punt covered 60 yards, and the Patriots’ coverage unit yielded only two punt returns for seven yards.

Most Sundays, Ryan Allen hits the field at Gillette Stadium, but on Saturday, Ryan got to see the game from another vantage point: the stands. Two football worlds collided for Ryan as his alma mater Louisiana Tech played UMass on the turf he now calls home in the NFL, and he wasn’t going to miss a chance to see his former team in action.
