The New England Patriots are making sure to keep their ever-important emergency list updated ahead of the start of training camp.
Pulley, 28, is headed into his sixth season in the NFL, entering the league in 2016 as an undrafted free agent with the then-San Diego Chargers. Following his departure from the Chargers in 2018, the 6-foot-4, 308-pound Vanderbilt product signed with the New York Giants, where he spent the next two seasons. A veteran of 49 games, Pulley has made 26 starts over the last three seasons.
Cole II, 24, is a second-year safety out of Mississippi State who was selected by the Minnesota Vikings in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL draft. After a short summer stint in Minnesota, the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Cole was waived and signed to the Miami Dolphins’ practice squad, where he would spend his entire rookie season. He was waived by Miami on July 16.
The Patriots’ roster is currently capped at 90. Any future signing would need a corresponding move.
