FOXBORO -- The Patriots added some special teams help on Thursday when they signed linebacker Josh Hull.
Hull has played for for both the Rams (2010-12) and Redskins (2013) over the course of his four-year career. He recorded 14 tackles with Washington last season, all in the kicking game.
A seventh-round choice out of Penn State in 2010, Hull was the second-to-last player taken (254th overall).
After losing core-four special teamer Dane Fletcher to free agency this offseason, the Patriots have now added a couple of pieces to help them in the kicking game. Safety Patrick Chung is back in New England after signing with the Patriots as a free agent this offseason and will likely see time on special teams as he did when he was a member of the Pats from 2009-12.
