FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The Patriots will sign undrafted Iowa offensive tackle Markus Zusevics, according to his agent Jack Bechta.
Zusevics was a two-year starter under Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz, who maintains strong ties with Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. Last season, Zusevics started all 13 games at right tackle for the Hawkeyes, and was named an All-Big Ten honorable mention.
The 6-foot-5, 303-pound Zusevics suffered a torn pectoral muscle during his bench press repetitions at February's Scouting Combine.
