Report: Patriots Sign Ex-Boston College DL Tim Bulman

According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the New England Patriots have agreed to terms with veteran defensive end Tim Bulman on a one-year deal. He is a native of Milton, MA and played his college football at Boston College.

As for his NFL career, Bulman has spent five seasons with the Houston Texans and the Arizona Cardinals. He has two career starts at defensive tackle and has played 49 career NFL games. His best NFL season came when he was with the Texans back in 2008, where he registered 18 tackles and four sacks.

Bulman has experience in both the 3-4 and 4-3 defenses--which likely factored into Bill Belichick's decision to sign him. Not that it factored into the signing, but I like the addition of the local guy. Though he's unlikely to make the roster, it gives us someone to pull for throughout camp.

The addition of Tim Bulman puts the Patriots at the 90-player limit for training camp, which starts tomorrow. While I still think it's worthy to keep an eye on the Andre Carter situation, this could be the final roster that the team will bring to training camp. Hello, Football!
