The New England Patriots have signed nine-time Pro Bowl safety John Lynch.
Lynch, a 15-year veteran, spent the first 11 years of his career with Tampa Bay and the last four years in Denver. His career totals include 1,277 tackles, 13 sacks and 26 interceptions.
The team did not report terms of the agreement Friday, but the NFL Network reported Thursday that Lynch signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract.
The Patriots on Friday also placed offensive lineman Barry Stokes on the reserve/injured list with a back injury.
