The Patriots have added a tight end to their undrafted free agent crop. According to WEEI's Christopher Price, the Nw England Patriots have signed former Iowa tight end Brad Herman to a rookie free agent contract.

At 6'4" and 252 lbs, Herman has solid size for the position, and also adds intriguing measurables. At his combine, Herman posted a 4.63 40 yard dash time and 36 inch vertical. He is reportedly an intelligent player and hard worker who is "scrappy" as a blocker. Pro Football Weekly had more on Herman in their pre-draft scouting report on him, summarizing him as a "raw, height-weight-speed prospect whose makeup and feel for the game do not run parallel with his unique athletic ability" whose "workout numbers will earn him a look as a developmental H-back/'move' tight end, but he failed to ascend as a senior with increased opportunity."

Sounds like intriguing competition for a practice squad spot.
