FOXBOROUGH – The Patriots have announced the signing of DT Andre Neblett to fill the open spot on their 53-man roster.
The 25-year old Neblett, listed at 6-feet, 310 pounds, was signed by the Panthers as a rookie free agent out of Temple in 2010. He played in 30 games with seven starts during his three seasons with the Panthers, recording 28 tackles, three sacks and two fumble recoveries. He signed with the Buccaneers as a free agent in May but was among their final cuts at the close of training camp.
Also, the Patriots re-signed S Kanorris Davis and LB Ja'Gared Davis to the practice squad. Both were promoted to the 53-man roster for Sunday's game against the Bengals and then released on Monday.
