Patriots re-sign cornerback Poteat

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (Sept. 27, 2006) -- The New England Patriots re-signed cornerback Hank Poteat after placing Randall Gay on the injured reserve list with a hamstring injury.

An undrafted free agent, Gay became a starter as a rookie in 2004.

Last season, Poteat was signed by the Patriots after injuries decimated the secondary. He played in 10 regular-season and two playoff games, recording 24 tackles and 20 solo tackles.

The 28-year-old Poteat first joined the Patriots in January 2005 and, despite having not played in the 2004 regular season, appeared in three playoff games, including the Super Bowl victory against Philadelphia.

Entering his sixth NFL season, Poteat has played in 52 career regular-season games and seven playoff games, including action with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
