NFL Free Agency 2012: FB Tony Fiammetta Signs With New England Patriots

The New England Patriots agreed to terms on Monday with former Dallas Cowboys fullback Tony Fiammetta, according to a report from Adam Caplan of Sirius XM NFL Radio.

Fiammetta, a 6-foot, 242-pounder, appeared in 10 games with the Cowboys alst season, making six starts almost solely as a blocking back.

The Patriots hardly ever used a fullback last season, preferring to spread the field with as many play-making threats as possible while keeping one running back or fewer with Tom Brady in the backfield. Fiammetta brings the total number of fullbacks on New England's roster to three, but the Patriots are unlikely to keep more than one for the regular season.

The 25-year old Fiammetta has played three NFL seasons after being drafted by the Carolina Panthers with the 28th pick of the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft.
