The New England Patriots need a little depth to their linebacker core with Rob Ninkovich injured.  Today the team re-signed linebacker Dekoda Watson to their 53-man roster.

Watson originally was signed by the Patriots on May 12, was cut Aug. 31, re-signed Sept. 17 and released again Sept. 30. Watson played two games with the Patriots and recorded one tackle. He’s previously spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jacksonville Jaguars and Dallas Cowboys.
According to NESN, The Patriots also are filling one of two open spots on their practice squad by signing running back Joey Iosefa, who was released from the active roster Monday and cleared waivers Tuesday. Iosefa, a rookie out of Hawaii, played two games and recorded 15 carries for 51 yards with the Patriots this month.
