The New England Patriots announced Wednesday that they’ve signed S Obi Melifonwu and CB Nate Brooks to their practice squad and released OL Colby Gossett from the unit.

The Patriots updated practice squad now includes: 

  1. LB Terez Hall
  2. FB Jakob Johnson

  5. OL Dan Skipper
  6. DL Nick Thurman

Melifonwu, 25, is a former second-round pick of the Raiders back in 2017. He was in the second year of his four-year, $4.5 million contract when the Raiders waived him in November of last year. 

The Patriots quickly signed Melifonwu to a contract and he finished out the year in New England. 

In 2018, Melifonwu appeared in seven games for the Raiders and Patriots and recorded seven tackles and no interceptions.
