On the eve of another training camp, the Patriots released one notable veteran, and added two others.
New England cut former Indianapolis running back Joseph Addai on
Wednesday, and signed tight end Visanthe Shiancoe and defensive lineman
Addai, 29, was signed by the Patriots as a free agent on May 10
following a six-year career with Indianapolis. He originally joined the
Colts as a first-round draft pick, No. 30 overall, out of LSU in 2006
and was released by Indianapolis on March 9. He has played in 78 NFL
games with 60 starts and has 4,453 yards, 1,095 carries and 39 rushing
touchdowns on his resume. Playing in the Colts' high-octane offense, he
also has 191 receptions for 1,448 yards and nine receiving touchdowns.
Bulman, 29, is a veteran of seven NFL seasons with Arizona and Houston.
The former Boston College Eagle is a native of Milton, Mass.
Shiancoe, 32, is a veteran of nine seasons with the Giants and Vikings.
He has 243 receptions for 2,677 yards and 27 touchdowns, and his best
statistical season came in 2009 when he caught 56 passes for 566 yards
and 11 scores for Minnesota.
