BOSTON (CBS) – The New England Patriots have signed free agent tight end D.J. Williams, according to multiple reports.

Williams was originally a 2011 fifth-round pick of the Green Bay Packers out of Arkansas, and most recently played for the Jacksonville Jaguars following his release by the Packers after training camp. Known more for his blocking, Williams has nine career catches for 70 yards in 33 games.

The signing gives New England a little more depth at the position as they had just two tight ends active on Sunday (Rob Gronkowski and Matthew Mulligan) against the Denver Broncos. Michael Hoomanawanui missed Sunday’s game with a knee injury he suffered in Week 11, and it’s not clear if he’ll be ready to go against the Houston Texans on Sunday.
