In the wake of losing Wes Welker, the Patriots have made a move on their practice squad to bolster depth at receiver, signing Nick Moore.
Moore, a rookie out of Toledo, was most recently with the Vikings practice squad. He had posted to his Twitter account last night that he signed with the Patriots, and that information has been confirmed.
In 2008 at Toledo, he totaled 78 receptions for 779 yards and one touchdown.
Moore is the brother of Saints receiver Lance Moore.
