The Patriots have just four defensive ends and eight defensive linemen on their roster right now. Onyenekwu is 6-foot-3, 264 pounds and recorded 6 1/2 sacks for the Ragin’ Cajuns in 2012. He played 127 snaps during the preseason, according to Pro Football Focus, recording one quarterback hit and three tackles.

The Patriots have already signed two undrafted rookies cut by the Dolphins, guard Chris Barker and defensive tackle A.J. Francis.
