Fauria, 25, spent over two years with the Lions before he was unfortunately among their final roster cuts at the start of the season. The Cardinals later signed him to a contract before adding him practice squad. He was eventually being release close to a month ago.
The Patriots added Fauria to their practice squad a few weeks ago before cutting him loose last week.
In 2014, Fauria appeared in seven games and caught six passes for 74 yards receiving and a touchdown for the Lions.
