McGowan, White re-signed

The Patriots have announced that safety Brandon McGowan and linebacker Tracy While, both unrestricted free agents, have been re-signed.

McGowan missed all of last year after suffering a torn pectoral muscle in the preseason.

White, acquired last year in a trade with Philadelphia, is a special-teams specialist.

The team also announced that it released undrafted rookie linebacker Anthony Leonard from West Virginia, though Leonard tweeted that he had been placed on injured reserve.
