Patriots re-sign OL Brian Schwenke, waive WR Amara Darboh
The Patriots re-added to their offensive line depth by bringing back offensive lineman Brian Schwenke just days after cutting him.
Veteran C/G Brian Schwenke re-signed with the Patriots today, per a source. He wore No. 63 at practice. Schwenke was with the team in training camp. Adds another layer of interior backup depth along with Ted Karras.
In a corresponding move, the team waived wide receiver Amara Darboh, who they claimed off of waivers on Sunday. Darboh is having surgery, although we're not sure what kind as of this moment, and that's the reason he was waived.
He could be placed on IR with a designation to return provided the surgery isn't season-ending.
#Patriots are waiving WR Amara Darboh, as @FieldYates said. Source adds that Darboh is having surgery today. Unclear what type but that’s the reason for the transaction and his short stint in NE.
