Bam Childress signed to practice squad

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Patriots signed wide receiver Bam Childress to their practice squad today.

Childress, 24, was originally signed by the Patriots as an undrafted free agent on July 24, 2005. The 5-foot-10-inch, 185-pound wide receiver was a member of the Patriots practice squad for the first 16 weeks of the 2005 season before being signed to the active roster on Dec. 31, 2005, the day before New England's regular-season finale against Miami. In that game, Childress' only NFL contest, he led the team with three receptions for 32 yards and also collected five tackles (2 solo) while playing in the defensive backfield.

The Ohio State product was a member of New England's active roster during the playoffs following the 2005 season, but was listed as a gameday inactive for both games. In the 2006 preseason, Childress led the Patriots with 214 receiving yards and finished second on the squad with 11 receptions. He also returned two punts for five yards and returned two kickoffs for 45 yards this preseason. Childress was released by the Patriots on Sept. 3, 2006.
