Pats sign linebacker Freeny to replace Gronk's roster spot

After the New England Patriots added Dwayne Allen in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts, it didn't appear that there would be much playing time available for rookie tight end Jacob Hollister.

Gronkowski's appeal of his one-game suspension for his late hit on Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White on Sunday was denied by the National Football League on Tuesday. However, both he and Allen are due for a major uptick in action on Monday against the Dolphins.

Freeny, 28, spent the 2015 and 2016 seasons with New England before being released following training camp this past summer on the final cut-down on September 2, 2017.

After being released by New England in September, Freeny signed with the Baltimore Ravens and played three contests there before being cut. He also has spent time with the Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars since coming into the National Football League as an undrafted free agent in 2011.

The 56-year-old told reporters: "We've had a really good week on the training ground. Football is about results. "Hopefully after Saturday it'll be eight".

Freeny has played in 65 National Football League games with 11 starts and owns 68 tackles on defense and 29 special teams tackles. He played 18 games with the Patriots in two seasons, collecting 33 tackles, one sack, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and one pass breakup.
