The 27-year-old Molden was claimed off waivers from the Houston Texans on September 1, and appeared in 19 games for New England in 2011, including the playoffs. He finished with 36 tackles, three passes deflections and two interceptions. He also contributed on special teams with 11 tackles.

Molden had a significant role in Super Bowl XLVI against the G-Men, playing 25 defensive snaps. Now he joins the reigning Super Bowl champs, who the Patriots visit to close the preseason.
