The New England Patriots are signing linebacker Raekwon McMillan, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss.

The Miami Dolphins drafted McMillan in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He missed his rookie season with an ACL injury, but logged 105 tackles, five tackles for loss and a pass breakup in 2018. He played 13 games in 2019 when he had 72 tackles with two quarterback hits. Miami traded him to the Raiders during the 2020 offseason. He logged 27 tackles in 2020.

He figures to serve as a depth option in New England’s linebacker group. He will join a unit which includes Dont’a Hightower, Matthew Judon, Kyle Van Noy, Chase Winovich and Ja’Whaun Bentley, among others.
