Just in case you missed it among the rush of Patriots transactions this afternoon, here are some details on WR Tiquan Underwood.

He is a 6-1 and 183-pound receiver who played at Rutgers and then played two seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Here is more information courtesy of the Patriots:

He was released by Jacksonville on August 25, 2011. Underwood originally entered the NFL as a seventh round draft choice (253rd overall) by Jacksonville in the 2009 NFL Draft out of Rutgers. After beginning his rookie season on the practice squad, he joined the 53-man roster and appeared in three games, mainly on special teams. Last season, he played in 10 games and caught eight passes for 111 yards and returned 24 kicks for 561 yards, including a career-long of 53 yards in the season-opener vs. Denver (9/12).
