Patriots sign OL Gallery

And another free agent signing for you: Michael Lombardi of reports that the Patriots have signed veteran offensive lineman Robert Gallery.

The 31-year-old Gallery started 12 games at left guard for the Seahawks last season; prior to that he spent seven years with Oakland.

Gallery, listed at 6-7, 325 pounds, was the second overall pick in the 2004 draft out of Iowa, where he played for former Bill Belichick assistant Kirk Ferentz. When he was drafted, Gallery was a tackle, but has since been kicked inside.

Update: Gallery’s agent, Rick Smith, tweets that Gallery “has agreed in principle to a one year deal” with the Patriots.
