Patriots resign Terrence Johnson, release Brian Simmons

The New England Patriots announced the return of one undrafted rookie free agent and the release of another Sunday afternoon. Cornerback Terrence Johnson was re-signed, while offensive lineman Brian Simmons was released by the club.

Johnson was originally signed by the Patriots as a rookie free agent out of California University of Pennsylvania on April 20, and was released on Aug. 23 after missing a large chunk of training camp due to injury. With cornerback Terrence Wheatley leaving Thursday night’s preseason game with an injury, Johnson was most likely resigned to provide depth in the Patriots final preseason game against the New York Giants.

Both Johnson and Simmons are candidates for the practice squad as rookies, but this move is very minor in the grand scheme of things this season for New England.
