The roster cutdown to 75 players is quickly approaching, but the Patriots actually may have added to their team on Sunday.

Defensive back Stephon Morris will be re-signed by New England, according to ESPNBoston.com. This would put the roster at a total of 85 two days before that number will have to be chopped down by 10.

Morris signed with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State on April 27 but was waived on the first day of August after appearing to come down with a minor hamstring injury during practice.

With injuries affecting Alfonzo Dennard, Ras-I Dowling and Brandon Jones at this point, Morris adds depth to a spot on the roster that desperately needs to step up for the Patriots in 2013.
