After a weekend of cuts, the New England Patriots added a few players, including ex-Kansas City Chiefs Pro Bowl guard Brian Waters as well as long snapper Danny Aiken, who was waived by the Buffalo Bills.
Waters brings talent and depth to a Patriots team which is in need of some help up front.
Waters, 6-foot-3, 320 pounds, spent the last 11 seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs (2000-10), where he earned four Pro Bowl berths while playing in 163 regular seasons games with 149 starts. He originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent tight end with the Dallas Cowboys in 1999 out of North Texas but was released prior to the start of the regular season. Waters signed with Kansas City on February 3, 2000 and switched to the offensive line. He spent the spring of 2000 playing in NFL Europe for the Berlin Thunder. Waters played tight end for his first three years at North Texas before moving to the defensive line as a senior. (via WEEI)
Aiken is a 6-foot-4, 250-pound an undrafted free agent out of the University of Virginia who was signed to a rookie contract by the Bills on July 28, 2011.
