FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Patriots announced that they have

Sept. 1.

Denver last Sunday night. He originally was signed by the Patriots as a
rookie free agent out of Illinois on July 21, 2013. The 5-foot-11,

seasons. He made 29 starts over his final three seasons, registering 76
total tackles, 13 passes defensed, one forced fumble and two fumble
recoveries. Green was released by the Patriots
on Aug. 31 and signed to the practice squad on Sept. 1
