Patriots sign D.J. Williams, cut Marcus Forston, Justin Green
The New England Patriots are signing former Jacksonville Jaguars and Green Bay Packers tight end D.J. Williams.
Williams has nine career receptions for 70 yards.
Williams is a former Arkansas standout who won the John Mackey Award in 2010 when he was named All-Southeastern Conference for the Razorbacks.
He had 54 receptions for 627 yards and four touchdowns.
A former Packers fifth-round draft pick, Williams was cut by the Jaguars earlier this month.
The Patriots are shorthanded at tight end due to a knee injury to Michael Hoomanawanui.
The Patriots cut cornerback Justin Green and defensive tackel Marcus Forston.
