According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the New England Patriots have signed two more undrafted free agents. One is an outside linebacker, and one is a long snapper.

 

This time after the draft where it seems like each NFL team is signing every available undrafted free agent can be a little hectic, but I assure you Bill Belichick has a plan. Adding depth to their group of linebackers was something that the Patriots had to do heading into this offseason, and they have already signed two linebackers in time following the draft. Cameron Gordon and James Morris may not even make the final roster, but it will give Belichick and the Pats time to evaluate them, and decide if they would fit well into their defense.

As for the signing of the longs snapper, Tyler Ott, I think it is just competition for current long snapper Danny Aiken.
