The Patriots have signed former wide receiver David Patten. Patten did not play last season, played in 5 games the season before and is 36 years old. In 2009 he was part of the Saints practice/off season squad, maybe that is what he will be in New England.
At his best with the Pats Patten had 800 yards and 7 TDs. Not bad but nothing phenomenal and it was 5 years ago. If Deion Branch comes back too it will be the Patriots of Super Bowls past. They should throw in Troy Brown and they need a running back so how about some Corey Dillon and make it really nostalgic.
