The New England Patriots announced the signing of free agent tight end Bo Scaife.

The New England Patriots like to utilize the tight end position in their offense. The team used both Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez in various different ways and the two wound up as the second and third leading receivers behind only Wes Welker. Evidently, the Patriots feel like they need more tight ends and have added Bo Scaife to their roster.

Scaife spent the early parts of his career in the NFL on the Tennessee Titans, catching passes from his former college teammate Vince Young. When Scaife became a free agent after the 2010 season he signed with the Cincinnati Bengals, but wound up on injured reserve with a shoulder injury in the preseason, missing the entire 2011 season.
