Welcome back, Marcus Cannon.

The Patriots on Thursday signed veteran offensive tackle Marcus Cannon to their practice squad, according to Field Yates of ESPN. Cannon, a fifth-round pick by New England in 2011, spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Patriots, starting in 69 games primarily as a right tackle.

He spent the 2021 season with the Texans, for whom he started four games. He opted out of the 2020 season — his last with the Patriots — during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The move will give the Patriots some extra veteran depth on the offensive line. Currently, the top tackles behind presumed starters Trent Brown and Isaiah Wynn are Yodny Cajuste and Justin Herron. Rookie tackle Andrew Stueber reportedly could miss the entire 2022 season with a torn hamstring.

New England will open its season on Sunday afternoon in Miami against the Dolphins.
