FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots signed fullback Kyle Eckel to the active roster and released linebacker Corey Mays on Monday.
Mays was in his second NFL season after signing with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent last year. The 6-foot-1, 245-pound linebacker played in eight regular-season games and three playoff games after spending the first half of the season on the practice squad.
