FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -The New England Patriots have signed cornerback Jeff Shoate and placed safety Tank Williams on the injured reserve list.
Terms of the deal with the 27-year-old Shoate were not disclosed Saturday.
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Shoate has played in 14 NFL games, all with the Denver Broncos.
Denver selected Shoate in the fifth round of the 2004 NFL draft and released him Dec. 4, 2007. He was signed to the Baltimore Ravens practice squad eight days later and he ultimately joined the New York Giants practice squad during last season's playoffs.
The Patriots signed Williams on March 6. The 6-2, 223-pound free agent has 59 starts in six seasons for the Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings.
