The Boston College product signed a one-year deal with the Pats in July after spending the last six seasons seeing limited duty with the Texans. He broke into the NFL in 2005, spending one season with the Cardinals after signing as an undrafted free agent.
The Patriots still have seven cuts to make in order to get the roster to 75 by the Monday afternoon deadline.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady joined Dennis & Callahan for his weekly chat Monday morning, as the Patriots close in on the end of the preseason.
The Red Sox made a blockbuster trade over the weekend after having issues in the clubhouse. Asked why the Patriots never seem to have such problems, Brady said it's because Bill Belichick won't allow it.
"Our locker room is run by one man. And he expects a certain level -- an attitude, a work ethic, an enthusiasm, an accountability that you have to bring to work every day," Brady said. "Those are the kind of players that he brings in. If you're not prepared to work or if you're not mentally tough, then he gets rid of you. Really, when you look around the locker room, you're surrounded by a bunch of guys that are very similar, and a bunch of guys that really care about the team and are committed to the team. That's what the foundation of our team is built on.
Roger Clemens looked good in his debut outing in the independent Atlantic League on Saturday night. He struck out two batters and gave up one hit in the 3 1/3 scoreless innings he pitched.
"I probably overextended myself a little bit," Clemens said after the game. "I wanted to see where I was at. Anytime you do these, they're fun but you don't want to go out and embarrass yourself or embarrass the club.
"We'll visit and if we can do something special down the road, we'll do it again for some of the people that couldn't get here," Clemens said. "I'm definitely open to it if they want to do it. It was a great deal of fun for me now that it's over and I stayed healthy."
You think another start is the last we'll hear from Roger? Think again.

The 6-foot-4, 330-pound Warren has played 11 years in the NFL, suiting up for the Browns (2001 through '04), Broncos ('05 to '06), Raiders ('07 to '09) and Patriots.
