Williams was a 2011 7th round pick by the Patriots and over the past two seasons spent most of the time on the practice squad. In career NFL games, he has recorded one special teams tackel. Fiammetta was orginally signed by New England before the 2012 season but was placed on the exempt/left squad list last August 4 and didn't appear in the game last season.

The Patriots haven't really used a fullback since Heath Evans left after the 2008 season.
