BOSTON (CBS) – The New England Patriots have signed offensive lineman Tyronne Green, according to the player’s agents.

The former fourth-round pick out of Auburn spent the first four seasons of his career with the San Diego Chargers, starting 28 of the 41 games he’s played in. He was the Chargers’ starting left guard last season, but after a rough year was not re-signed after his rookie contract was up.

The 6-2, 316-pound Green gives New England some depth at guard — as well as other areas on the line — should Dan Connolly not be ready for OTA’s after undergoing off-season shoulder surgery.

Green figures to be a depth player behind Logan Mankins and Connolly, though is noted as a versatile lineman that can play either guard position and center.
