FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – The New England Patriots re-signed tight end Jason Rader to the practice squad and released quarterback David Greene from the unit on Tuesday.

New England released the 6-foot-4, 260-pound Rader from the practice squad reserve/injured list on Sept. 30. He was placed on that list five days earlier.

The 26-year-old was signed to the practice squad on Sept. 3. He played in five NFL games with the Miami Dolphins in 2006, splitting time on the practice squad.

Greene was released Sept. 2 by the Seattle Seahawks after he hadn’t played in any of 32 regular-season games the past two seasons. He was drafted by Seattle in 2005 after an NCAA Division 1-A record 42 wins at Georgia.
