Patriots tweak back-end DT depth chart

July, 21, 2014
The New England Patriots continue to tweak the back-end of their roster leading into training camp, signing undrafted free-agent defensive tackle Eathyn Manumaleuna. To make room for Manumaleuna, the club waived undrafted rookie defensive tackle Seali'i Epenesa.

Manumaleuna, 25, was originally signed by the Giants on May 12. He was waived June 19.

The 6-foot-2, 305-pound Manumaleuna finished his college career at Brigham Young playing 56 games and totaling 143 tackles and 5.5 sacks. He is a longshot to earn a roster spot.

Epenesa, 22, had joined the Patriots as an undrafted free agent on June 17.
