Freeny joined the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Rutgers in 2011, and spent his first four seasons in Miami. The veteran will be entering his second campaign with the Patriots.
He started seven games for the Patriots last season, and racked up a career-high 50 tackles. Freeny also played a key role for New England’s special teams unit.
