- Alex Marvez has confirmed that the Patriots are re-signing TE Michael Hoomanawanui.
- Marvez adds that Hoomanawanui will receive a two-year contract.
Hoomanawanui, 25, was a former fifth-round pick of the Rams back in 2010. He joined the Patriots in 2012, but has had a hard time carving out a role, despite Rob Gronkowski getting injured and Aaron Hernandez no longer being with the team.
Last year, he totaled 12 receptions for 136 yards receiving and a touchdown over the course of 13 games.
