FOXBORO, Mass. — James Develin wasn’t gone for long.
The Patriots re-signed the fullback just two days after he was released from the team, according to Nick Underhill of MassLive.com. Develin was with the team throughout training camp and the preseason. He was released Tuesday to make room for tight end Matthew Mulligan.
Develin played fullback and tight end with the Patriots this summer. He has also spent time with the Bengals during his NFL career. Develin played defensive end for Brown. He went undrafted in 2010.
The Patriots released Mulligan and center Braxston Cave on Thursday.
