The Patriots have signed second-year player Dorin Dickerson to the practice squad.

Dickerson, a seventh-round pick of the Texans last year, played seven games with Houston last season, mostly on special teams. He was released by Houston on final cut-down day this year, but was scooped up by the Steelers, who added him to their practice squad from Sept. 12 to 15.

New England had Dickerson in for a workout last week.

During his college career at Pittsburgh, Dickerson played receiver, linebacker, and tight end.
