Continuing to add parts to their roster that will potentially offer them more flexibility in the draft, the Patriots reached a contract agreement with tight end Marcus Pollard today, according to a league source.
The 36-year-old Pollard enters his 14th season in 2008. He caught 28 passes for 273 yards and 2 touchdowns last season, in his lone year with the Seahawks. He previously played for the Colts (1995-2004) and Lions (2005-2006).
Pollard (6-3, 255) joins a tight end group that includes Benjamin Watson, David Thomas and Stephen Spach.
