On Wednesday, The New England Patriots signed free-agent defensive tackle Ishmaa’ily Kitchen to add depth at the position following the season ending injury to Dominique Easley.
According to a report by ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss, ” Kitchen was present in the team’s locker room Wednesday and dressing for practice.”
Reiss stated, “Kitchen entered the NFL as an undrafted player with the Ravens in 2012. He was claimed by the Browns on waivers before the start of the 2012 season, and went on to play in 40 regular-season games and totaled 78 tackles for them in three seasons.”

Kitchen also has had a brief run-in with television, as he was featured in a sketch during a Super Bowl themed episode of the Comedy Central sketch comedy show Key & Peele back in January. (2:25 mark)
