The Patriots have activated TE Visanthe Shiancoe to the 53-man roster. He was previously on IR with the designation to return.

The Patriots now have their 100,000th tight end.
Shiancoe was placed on the temporary injured reserve back in September. He brings some more potential to this already explosive offense. If the Patriots can run Bill Belichick's wet dream three tight end offense (they loved doing this in Week 1) the rest of the NFL will have to be on look out.
If you have three tight ends that are all legitimate receiving and blocking options you can really dictate the defense.
