The Patriots announced the signing of defensive lineman Marcus Harrison.
A 2008 third-round pick out of Arkansas by the Chicago Bears, Harrison had 55 tackles and three quarterback sacks in 37 games with the Bears before he was released in September. The Carolina Panthers claimed Harrison off waivers, but released him after he failed his physical.
Harrison visited the Browns and tried out for the Broncos last month, and had a tryout with the Patriots on Thursday.
Cornerback Phillip Adams has been waived, one day after re-signing with the team.
