The Patriots have signed eight-year veteran defensive back Nate Jones, the team announced today.
Jones, 29, has played with Dallas, Miami and Denver.
The Cowboys took Jones as a seventh-round draft pick out of Rutgers in 2004. Over the next four seasons, he played for Dallas in all but 13 games, primarily on special teams.
He was an occasional defensive starter with the Dolphins in 2008 and 2009, and with the Broncos in 2010. He returned to Miami this season and played two early-season games before being released on Oct. 5.
For his career, Jones has 163 tackles (59 on special teams), 6 sacks and 3 interceptions.
Jones takes the roster spot that became free yesterday when the Patriots cut another defensive back, Phillip Adams.

The Patriots have waived 23-year old cornerback Phillip Adams. Adams played in 6 games for the Patriots last year and he had 8 tackles, 1 pass defensed and 1 interception. He has now played in 21 games in his first two years in the NFL and he has 21 tackles, 1 interception and 2 passes defensed. This is not a big loss for the Patriots.
Patriots vs. Colts 2003 regular season… aka the Willie McGinest goaline stop game. In many ways this is the game that started one of the greatest rivalries of the 00’s.
FOXBORO, Mass. — It’s beginning to look like Patriots tackle Sebastian Vollmer will miss some time with an injury, and if that’s indeed the case, rookie Marcus Cannon is ready to take on an increased role if necessary. Vollmer was replaced at right tackle by rookie Nate Solder in the second half of Sunday’s victory against the Eagles. The Patriots originally announced it...
By Brian MacPhersonJulian Edelman might have made the Patriots' most impressive defensive play last Sunday against Philadelphia, wrapping up 230-pound quarterback Vince Young in the open field and tackling him shy of the goal line.
Edelman finished with three tackles in the game, the same number as Jerod Mayo and Rob Ninkovich.
But open-field tackling isn't new to Edelman...
So a reporter asks Bill Belichick at a press conference about being able to judge his team against an inferior team like the Indianapolis Colts. Bill doesn't like the question and gives her the peoples eyebrow along with some smack talk.
"I just don't agree with that, so just go on with your soliloquy" Then he gets in depth about how good the players on...

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.
To be honest with you, I firmly believe that the New England Patriots are the best team in the AFC. They have the most bendable defense in the league that thrives in the redzone and not to mention, Tom Brady is white hot as of right now. They’re going to be a very tough...

Doesn’t it seem like ages ago when all the haters out there were standing tall, beating their chests and harping on the completely hackneyed idea that Patriots coach Bill Belichick is finished? Three weeks by unofficial count. Over the course of that stretch, the Pats have embarked on a three-game winning streak during which they’ve rolled...
A funny thing happened to Tom Brady on the way to slicing and dicing the Philadelphia Eagles at their home field. Tom tried sliding to avoid the behemoth tacklers on the Philly side as he scrambled with the ball.
We have seen better slides from Uncle Fred’s holiday in Poughkeepsie. It was not Brady’s fault as he dashed away for extra yards when...
