New England Patriots Signings: BenJarvus Green-Ellis Agrees To Restricted Free Agent Tender

After being MIA for the first couple weeks of training camp, the New England Patriots reported on Wednesday that restricted free agent running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis has agreed to his RFA tender and will report to camp. 

Green-Ellis had a breakout year with New England last season, rushing for 1,008 yards and 13 touchdowns, becoming the first Pats' running back to break the 1,000-yard barrier since Corey Dillon ran for 1635 yards in 2004.

Green-Ellis appeared in each 16 of New England's games for the first time in his three-year career, starting in 11 of the games. He averaged 4.2 yards per carry.  

The team also announced a few additional signings, bringing unrestricted free agent center Chris Morris, free agent offensive lineman Jonathan Compas and rookie free agent running back Richard Medin into the fold. 

The Patriots also released veteran running back Thomas Clayton and rookie free agent offensive lineman Mike Berry
