The Patriots traded for him in August, but he was unfortunately unable to make the team’s 53-man roster coming out of the preseason. New England later promoted him close to a month ago be was waived this past weekend.
Chargers made several other roster moves as well:
The team placed safety Eric Weddle, tight end Ladarius Green, defensive back Darrell Stuckey, and nose tackle Sean Lissemore on season ending injured reserve.
The team promoted tight end Sean McGrath and safety Matt Daniels to their active roster from their practice squad, and also re-signed Craig Watts and Michael Huey to their practice squad.
