(NEW YORK) — The New England Patriots continued to bolster their secondary by re-signing cornerback Aqib Talib to a one-year deal on Saturday.
The 26-year-old Talib came over in a trade from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season. He played in just six regular-season games for the Patriots, returning an interception for a touchdown and posting 19 tackles in those contests.
The Patriots agreed to deals with cornerback Kyle Arrington and safety Adrian Wilson earlier in the week in hopes of strenghtening their secondary for the upcoming season.
The team also announced on Saturday that they released wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, who was due a $3 million roster bonus this weekend.
