Even though all signs continue to point towards Wes Welker making a full recover in time for the start of the 2010 season, the Patriots continue to add possible depth at playmaker positions on offense. On Monday, the Patriots signed first-year tight end Carson Butler, and free agent rookie wide receiver Rod Owens. From the Pats’ website:
Butler, 6-4, 260 pounds, was originally signed by the Green Bay Packers as a rookie free agent out of Michigan in 2009….
Owens, 6-0, 183 pounds, was signed by the St. Louis Rams as a rookie free agent in April. He was released by the Rams in May. Owens finished his college career at Florida State with 91 receptions for 1,080 yards and four touchdowns.
