New England Patriots Signings: Sammy Morris Back In The Fold

According to reports, Sammy Morris has signed a one-year deal to remain a New England Patriot. 

Morris, who spent a majority of his career decimating the Pats while in Miami, was signed by New England prior to the 2007 season, and has spent the past four years in Foxboro. 

Morris' veteran presence should help stabilize a backfield that looks to be relatively young, despite the anticipated returns of Danny Woodhead and BenJarvus Green-Ellis, but it's not too likely that Morris will see the ball too often - especially after a season in which he rushed for just 56 yards in limited time. 

If Kevin Faulk returns healthy enough from offseason knee surgery, he'll be likely to compete for time - especially on thiird down - in the backfield with Morris, who'll also have to fend off newcomers Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen

Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the player's agent.
