And then there were 9: Pats sign CB Cole

New England has announced that it has also signed Jets free agent CB Marquice Cole.

Cole will likely be a special-teamer primarily: he has 45 special-teams tackles in 37 career games; defensively, he has one start, 14 tackles, and two interceptions. Both of those INTs came in that lone start, against Buffalo on Jan. 2, 2011.

Cole is the ninth free agent the Pats have signed (who spent last season with another club) over the last week, most in the last few days:

DL Jonathan Fanene
DE/OLB Trevor Scott
WR Brandon Lloyd
WR Anthony Gonzalez
WR Donte Stallworth
DB Steve Gregory
OL Robert Gallery
TE Daniel Fells
CB Marquice Cole
