Undrafted free agents 2014: New England Patriots to sign Tyler Beck, Roy Finch & Micajah Reynolds

As is the case every year, once the draft comes to an end, there are many players still looking for a home. Usually, those undrafted players quickly sign with a team and get ready to go to work. Often times it is better for a player to go undrafted instead of getting picked in the final round. Players can assess their situation and see if a team has a need at their position or has shown a lot of interest in them. In some cases, players simply choose to stay closer to home.

According to NEPatriotsDraft.com, the Patriots have agreed to deals with three undrafted free agents, former Bowling Green State Falcons’ tight end  Tyler Beck, former Oklahoma Sooners’ running back Roy Finch & former Michigan State Spartans’ defensive lineman Micajah Reynolds.

Beck, who made 10 receptions for 177 yards and two touchdowns last season could fill a need at tight end while Finch, who had 347 yards on 59 carries, could help carry the load with fellow rookie James White and the other young Patriots’ running backs and Reynolds, who made 37 tackles could help the Patriots get younger up front.

UPDATE: Reynolds will not be signing with the Patriots and will instead be joining the New Orleans Saints.
