The Patriots have signed WR Devin Ross, as the 90th man on their 90-man roster.
Ross, 24, participated in all three minicamp practices and was signed five days after the final practice Monday.
Despite never appearing in an NFL (regular season) game, the 5-foot-9 receiver participated in Training Camp of 2020 for the Patriots. After getting cut at the end of camp, he re-signed with the team, joining the practice squad. The speedy 192-pound wideout entered the league in 2018 with the Titans, before getting cut and going to Philadelphia for a brief stint.
Ross was one of two players who tried out for the Patriots in minicamp. The other, was former North Carolina guard R.J. Prince.
Prince, 26, went undrafted in 2018, before having stints with the Steelers and Ravens. He, like Ross, hasn’t made an NFL appearance. The offensive-lineman stands at 6-foot-6, weighing 311 pounds.
With Prince’s signing Thursday, the Patriots said farewell to two special team units – kicker Roberto Aguayo and long snapper Wes Farnsworth.
Aguayo, 27, was a second-round pick out of Florida State back in 2016, by the Buccaneers. He would have tenures with the Bears, Panthers and Chargers before signing with the Patriots’ Practice Squad in December of 2020.
Farnsworth, the former Nevada standout, participated in Patriots OTAs throughout May, and as well as minicamp. The 24-year old went undrafted in 2019, and has spent time on both the Dolphins and Broncos roster, but has never appeared in a game.
