The New England Patriots are not done adding to one of their weakest positions.
Per reports, the team signed former New York Jets and New York Giants tight end Eric Tomlinson.
The #Patriots are making a move to bolster their tight end position, signing former #Giants and #Jets TE Eric Tomlinson to their 53-man roster, source said. The knee injury to Matt LaCosse left them a little short.

Tomlinson was brought in for a workout earlier in the season and the team liked enough of what they saw to give him a shot.
Tight end Matt LaCosse suffered a MCL sprain halting his season and leaving the team shorter than they already were at the position.
