      The New England Patriots re-signed veteran cornerback Hank Poteat
      today. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

      Poteat, 28, was initially acquired by the Patriots as a free agent
      on Jan. 10, 2005, and has played in 10 regular-season games and five
      playoff games for New England. The 5-foot-10-inch, 192-pound
      cornerback will enter his sixth NFL season in 2006 and has played in
      52 career regular-season games and seven playoff games for the
      Pittsburgh Steelers (2000-02), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2003) and
      Patriots (2004-05). The University of Pittsburgh product was
      originally drafted by the Steelers in the third round (77th overall)
      of the 2000 NFL Draft.

      With the Patriots in 2005, Poteat set a single-season career high
      with 24 tackles (20 solo) and also recorded his first career sack
      against the New York Jets on Dec. 26, 2005. He set a single-game
      career high with nine tackles (8 solo) in the 2005 regular-season
      finale against the Miami Dolphins on Jan. 1, 2006. Poteat's career
      regular-season statistics include 33 tackles (29 solo), one sack,
      one pass defensed, one forced fumble and three fumble recoveries. He
      has also returned 45 kickoffs for 818 yards (18.2 avg) and 76 punts
      for 788 yards (10.4 avg) and a touchdown.
