Maryland TE Will Yeatman to join Patriots
The New England Patriots have agreed to terms with big University of Maryland tight end and lacrosse player Will Yeatman, according to a league source.
Yeatman is a former Notre Dame player, so he should be somewhat familiar with the Patriots' offense.
Yeatman is a 6-foot-6, 268-pounder who played on special teams as well as starting at tight end last season after missing a few games with a broken finger.
A strong blocking presence, Yeatman caught a career-high 13 passes for 134 yards and one touchdown last season for the Terrapins.
