NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS RE-SIGN WR FRED COLEMAN

FOXBORO, Mass - The New England Patriots announced the re-signing of wide receiver Fred Coleman today. Terms of the deal were not announced.

Coleman, 27, was signed by the Patriots on Nov. 8, 2001 and appeared in each of the Patriots remaining games, including eight regular season and three postseason games. His first career reception was for a 46-yard gain that sparked a scoring drive in a 17-16 come-from-behind victory over the New York Jets (12/2/01). He added a second reception in the season finale at Carolina (1/6/02) to finish with two receptions for 50 yards.

The 6-foot, 190-pound wide receiver was originally drafted in the sixth round of the 1998 NFL draft by the Buffalo Bills after catching 97 passes for 1,588 yards and 11 touchdowns during his collegiate career at Washington. He spent the majority of his first two seasons in the NFL on the practice squads of the Buffalo Bills (1998) and the New York Jets (1999). He was out of the league in 2000 and joined the Patriots after playing for the Chicago Enforcers of the XFL in 2001.
