New England announced the signing of rookie free agent OL Jon Opperud on Friday. The Patriots roster now holds 89 of 90 possible players.

Opperud was a three-year starter for Montana, playing left guard before being moved to left tackle for his last two years.

I like the way hes approached his new position move mentally, putting in extra meeting and film time," former Grizzlies coach Robin Pflugrad said of the transition. "He understands that you have to do it mentally first, and then the physical part of it comes."

The 6-7, 300-pounder was originally signed by Seattle on April 29. He was released earlier this week.
