The Patriots added a tackle on Thursday, with the club agreeing to terms with former Pittsburgh Steeler Chukwuma Okorafor ahead of free agency.

The 26-year old has started a total of 59 games for the Steelers, including 14 last season.

While he’s not a top-tier player by any means, he at least provides a serviceable player at what’s certainly a position of need this offseason.  That was an area where they were thin last season, and the former Steeler is young and seemingly has some upside, which is good news considering that New England needs as much help as it can get right now.

The Patriots are expected to continue targeting that position this offseason, whether it’s through free agency or the draft next month.
