FOXBORO, Mass. (March 23, 2006) -- Cornerback Chad Scott is staying with New England, one of the first signings by the Patriots in an offseason in which stalwarts like Willie McGinest and Adam Vinatieri left the team.
Scott is a former first-round draft pick who spent most of last season on injured reserve.
He re-signed a day after Vinatieri, who kicked the game-winning field goals in two of the Patriots' three Super Bowl victories, signed with the Indianapolis Colts.
Last Friday, the Patriots signed wide receiver Reche Caldwell, an unrestricted free agent who spent his first four seasons with San Diego.
