The Patriots continue to re-tool the back end of their roster, signing wide receivers Cole Stanford and Brian Tyms.
Stanford played ball out of Cal Poly, beginning at linebacker, but ending as a slotback. He finished the season with 24 receptions for 354 yards and four touchdowns. He also had 14 carries for 53 yards.
Tyms, a UDFA in 2012, spent time with, San Francisco, Miami and Cleveland’s practice squad. The 6-foot-3 receiver ended the season playing in seven games with the Browns.
With the additions of these players, came the subtraction of another. Wide receiver Greg Orton, who reportedly suffered a season ending Achilles injury, during training camp action on Friday.
Orton was waived for the purpose of being placed on injured reserve.
