The Patriots signed linebacker Jeff Tarpinian from their practice squad to the 53-man roster on Saturday and released offensive lineman Matt Tennant.

Tarpinian played in seven games last season, but was cut at the end of training camp this summer and signed to the practice squad the next day.

Tennant was on the 53-man roster but inactive for three games this season.
