Patriots Announce Signing Of TE Matthew Mulligan
" BOSTON (CBS) – Rob Gronkowski has returned to practice, but the New England Patriots are still adding a little depth to the tight end position.

The team announced the signing of tight end Matthew Mulligan on Tuesday, a veteran of three NFL seasons and a former Maine Black Bear. Mulligan takes the roster spot that opened up when the team released fullback James Develin on Monday.

The 6-4, 270-pound Mulligan is known more for his blocking, and will give New England another tight end option to play alongside rookie Zach Sudfeld and Michael Hoomanawaunui as Gronkowski recovers from his offseason filled with various surgeries.

Mulligan had eight catches for 84 yards and a touchdown in nine games with the St. Louis Rams last season. He played for the New York Jets from 2009-2011, catching just six passes for 60 yards in 11 games.
