In a move to add another man to the 90 man roster, the New England Patriots have signed Cornerback Justin Green, making him the 89th man on the roster prior to training camp. Green, who played for Illinois in college had 36 tackles and 6 defended passes in his senior year.
According to WEEI, Green's stats at Illinois are as followed:
- 29 starts
- 76 total tackles
- 13 passes defended
- 1 forced fumble
- 2 forced recoveries
- 36 tackles
- 6 passes defended
Green becomes the fourth player on the 90 man roster to come from Illinois, and he joins Tavon wilson, Micheal Hoomanwanui, and Michael Buchanan.
With training camp starting this Friday at 9am, it will be interesting to see how this un-drafted free agent fits into the "Patriots Way", and here's hoping that Green can bring some depth to the New England Secondary.
