The New England Patriots have re-signed veteran defensive lineman Gerard Warren, the team announced on Thursday. In addition, the Patriots have released wide receiver Tiquan Underwood according to his agent.

Warren played sparingly last year, mainly as a reserve defensive lineman for the Patriots. The 6-foot-4, 330 pound Warren played in 12 games and gives the team solid veteran depth along the defensive front. After not addressing the interior of the line through the draft this past weekend, re-signing Warren seems like a smart move for New England.

Underwood played in six games for the Patriots last season. The 25-year-old hauled in three receptions for 30 yards. The release does not come at a surprise as the Patriots will reported ink former Redskins receiver Jabar Gaffney to a two-year deal in the coming days.
