The Patriots have signed rookie running back George Winn.

Winn, who is 5 feet 10 inches, 218 pounds, was not drafted out of Cincinnati but was signed by the Texans. Houston released him a couple of weeks later. As a starter in college in 2012, Winn had 243 carries for 1,334 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Winn was recruited to Cincinnati by Massachusetts native and current Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly, and is a cousin of former NFL receiver Derrick Mason.

New England now has 88 players on its roster; teams can carry 90 into training camp.
