Report: Patriots Sign OL Robert Gallery

BOSTON (CBS) — The Patriots continued their flurry of free-agent moves on Monday afternoon, signing offensive guard Robert Gallery, according to NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi.

Gallery, who will turn 32 this summer, was considered one of the great NFL Draft busts of all time, as he was selected No. 2 overall in 2004, one spot behind Eli Manning and ahead of a list of top-10 players that includes Larry Fitzgerald and Philip Rivers.

Originally a left tackle, Gallery was eventually moved to guard, where he performed much better at the NFL level.

Gallery signed a three-year deal with the Seahawks prior to last season but was released after the season ended.

Last year, the Patriots signed veteran Brian Waters to a two-year deal, though he may retire prior to this season, hence the team’s addition. Logan Mankins at left guard is signed with the team long-term.

Earlier, the Patriots reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with Donte Stallworth, after agreeing to deals with Brandon Lloyd and Anthony Gonzalez over the weekend.
