Patriots have claimed cornerback Troy Hill off the waivers from the Bengals

Patriots have traded for former Miami Hurricane tight end Asante Cleveland

Patriots have released tight end Asante Cleveland after making a trade for the tight end.

The New England Patriots announced that they claimed DB Troy Hill off of waivers from the Cincinnati Bengals on Friday and placed TE Asante Cleveland on waivers.

Hill was promoted from the Bengals’ practice squad Dec. 5. He was waived Dec. 24. Hill has six tackles in three games with the Bengals this season as a cornerback/special teamer.

The 5-foot-11, 182-pound Oregon product ran a 4.54-second 40-yard dash at his Pro Day in March with a 6.65-second 3-cone, 4.15-second short shuttle, 34-inch vertical leap and 10-foot, 2-inch broad jump.

Hill joins Malcolm Butler, Logan Ryan, Leonard Johnson and Justin Coleman on the Patriots’ cornerback depth chart.
