Patriots Re-Sign K Nick Folk & Add DL Michael Barnett

The Patriots announced Monday they have officially re-signed K Nick Folk. New England also signed DL Michael Barnett to the active roster. 

Folk worked out for the Patriots over the weekend and his signing was expected to be finalized today. He’ll compete with rookie K Justin Rohrwasser

Folk, 35, is a former sixth-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2007. He spent over two years in Dallas before he signed on with the Jets in 2010 as a free agent.

Folk was entering the final year of his four-year, $12 million contract that included $2.1 million guaranteed when the Jets released him. After a short stint with the Buccaneers, Folk joined the Patriots last year and was on and off of their roster.

In 2019, Folk appeared in seven games for the Patriots and converted 14-of-17 field goal attempts (82.4 percent) to go along with all 12 extra-point tries.
