The New England Patriots have added to their practice squad roster.
Ekuale, a Washington State product who entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent with the Cleveland Browns in 2018, made the Jacksonville Jaguars’ 53-man roster but was released at the end of last season.
The 6-foot-3, 305-pound lineman has played in 16 NFL games and recorded 17 total tackles with one sack.
The Patriots open their season on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins at 4:25 p.m. ET.
