New England Patriots have signed full back Joey Iosefa to their 53 man roster. Iosefa was selected in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a fullback. The 6-foot, 245-pound back was waived Aug. 31 and signed to the Patriots’ practice squad Oct. 21. Iosefa carried the ball 512 times for 2,218 yards with 21 touchdowns in four seasons as a running back at Hawaii.

He also had 60 catches for 438 yards with three scores. He ran a 4.80-second 40-yard dash at his Pro Day in March with a 7.09-second 3-cone, 4.28-second short shuttle, 32.5-inch vertical leap and 9-foot, 4-inch broad jump. The Patriots will need to make a corresponding move to free up a roster spot for Iosefa.
