FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Former Maryland punt returner Tony Logan appears set to join the New England Patriots on Wednesday, according to a picture posted to Instagram of his new locker in Gillette Stadium.
Soon after, the Patriots announced they had signed Logan to the practice squad.
The Patriots had an open practice-squad spot after releasing offensive lineman Tommie Draheim on Tuesday, and still have an opening on the 53-man roster even after confirming the re-signing of wide receiver Deion Branch on Wednesday.
Logan started just three games at wide receiver last season for Maryland, but was ranked third nationally among punt returners with an 18.1 yard average. He also returned 15 kickoffs last season for the Terrapins, for a 21.1 yard average.
After going undrafted in April, Logan attended rookie camp with the St. Louis Rams and later spent time on the practice squad of the CFL's Edmonton Eskimos.
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Logan will wear No. 13 in New England, according to his Instagram photo.
