FOXBORO, Mass. — The New England Patriots announced their 10-man practice squad Monday, and there are some familiar faces in the bunch.
The Patriots signed wide receivers Kenbrell Thompkins and Nathan Palmer, tight end Asante Cleveland, offensive linemen Chris Barker and Blaine Clausell, linebackers Xzavier Dickson, Darius Fleming and Brandon King, cornerback Daxton Swanson and defensive tackle Jimmy Staten to the practice squad.
Cleveland, Barker, Dickson, Fleming, King and Swanson were with the team during training camp and preseason. Palmer and Staten worked out for the Patriots last week. Thompkins was with the team in 2013 and part of the 2014 season.
