Report: Patriots re-sign DT Daniel Ekuale to new deal
The New England Patriots signed defensive tackle Daniel Ekuale to a new contract on Friday, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
Ekuale was a dependable player for New England last season. He played in 15 games and tallied two sacks in addition to 14 combined tackles last season.
This has been a busy couple days for New England, as they have signed several organizational free agents. This includes positional teammate Carl Davis, who inked a one-year contract with the team on Monday. The brunt of the team’s moves have come on the offensive side of the ball, but they clearly haven’t forgotten about their defense.
