Patriots sign rookie tight end Yeatman

According to undrafted rookie William Yeatman, he has signed a deal with the Patriots. The former University of Maryland tight end announced the news via his Twitter account:

"Alright people I guess the word is out. I'm a New England Patriot!"

At Maryland, the 6-foot-5 270-pound tight end appeared in 11 games in 2010, making 13 receptions for 134 yards and a touchdown.

Yeatman played in 28 games for Notre Dame during his freshman, sophomore and junior seasons before a suspension cut his 2008 season short. He was suspended after being arrested in South Bend during a house party. The arrest violated the terms of a previous arrest for reckless driving and driving while intoxicated.

Yeatman also played lacrosse at both Notre Dame and Maryland.

Martellus Bennett is as good at Twitter as he is at football. Add to that the fact that all eyes are on whether the free agent will stay in New England and the @MartysaurusRex account becomes a must-follow. 

On Wednesday, Bennett put his powers to good use and shared a glimpse into his line of thinking regarding free agency.

Bennett, who could very well leave the Pats for more money, responded to a criticism of his desire to get paid and followed it with several more musings.
