Pats get some insurance for GronkFOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Three days before training camp opens, the New England Patriots have signed veteran tight end Nate Byham. The 26-year-old Byham spent the past two seasons with Tampa Bay after his first two seasons with San Francisco.
The Patriots have been seeking depth at tight end going into training camp. Rob Gronkowski was a limited participant in minicamp last month as he continued his comeback from a season-ending knee injury last year.
