Patriots To Sign DB Vincent Fuller

According to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe, the New England Patriots are expected to sign defensive back Vincent Fuller

Fuller, 29, played one game for the Detroit Lions this season, but suffered an elbow injury and was placed on injured reserve. The Lions later decided to outright release Fuller on December 7, which allowed him to come off injured reserve and become a free agent. 

While Vincent Fuller is no Devin McCourty or Kyle Arrington, he could help out the Pats with depth in their depleted secondary and on special teams.

A fourth-round draft pick of the Titans in 2005, Fuller has played in 76 career games, with five starts. He is listed at 6-1, 192 pounds. Fuller has played slot/nickel back and some safety in his career and is also considered a solid special-teams player. (via Boston Globe)    

The Patriots now have Fuller, McCourty, Arrington, Pat Chung, James Ihedigbo, Sergio Brown, Antwaun Molden, Nate Jones, and journey man Ross Ventrone in the secondary.
