The New England Patriots have signed former SMU wide receiver Jeremy Johnson, according to a source.

Johnson was signed one day after the Patriots released veteran offensive linemam R.J. Mattes.

Johnson tried out for the Baltimore Ravens at their rookie minicamp, but wasn't signed.

He caught 112 passes for 1,112 yard and six touchdowns last season before going undrafted.
