The New England Patriots have re-signed defensive tackle Anthony Johnson to the practice squad, per a press release from the team. Johnson was released earlier this week to make space for defensive tackle John Hughes.
Johnson turned heads this preseason as a fantastic pass rusher from the interior, but he was unable to maintain the level of success in the regular season. He will work on the practice squad due to his obvious potential.
The Patriots released offensive lineman Ian Silberman from the practice squad to make space for Johnson.
