Patriots sign long snapper Charley Hughlett

Danny Aiken has some competition.

The Patriots have signed long snapper Charley Hughlett to the team. Hughlett entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Dallas Cowboys in 2012 out of Central Florida where he was the long snapper for four years.

Aiken, a member of the Patriots since 2011, was re-signed March 7 on a one-year deal. He was the first of the Patriots’ free agents to re-sign before the free agency period opened.
