In early April, the Washington Redskins released linebacker Josh Hull (along with cornerback Ryan Mouton and wide receiver Josh Bellamy).
On Thursday, Hull found a new home, signing with the New England Patriots.
Adam Caplan of ESPN’s NFL Insiders and Sirius XM Radio first broke the news.

The Redskins signed Hull after he was released by the St. Louis Rams after training camp last season. He finished the season with 14 tackles.
Hull, 26, was originally drafted by the Rams with the 254th overall pick in the seventh round of the 2010 Draft. Hull, a former Penn State Nittany Lions’ standout made 11 tackles in three seasons with the Rams.
He is expected to join special teams ace (and captain) Matt Slater as a kick coverage specialist.
