New England Patriots

From the NFL Newswire at

The Patriots have made another move aimed at bolstering their special teams unit, signing former Jets safety Terrence Brooks to a 2-year contract Thursday.

Brooks was a core special teams player for the Jets, leading the team in special teams snaps in 2018.  According to Doug Kyed of NESN, he has not played more than 9 percent of his team’s defensive snaps since his first year in the league.

Brooks was a third round pick by the Ravens in 2014 before spending the last two season in New York.

The Patriots have already added to their special teams unit this offseason, signing running back Brandon Bolden back after he spent a year in Miami. Wide receiver Bruce Ellington, who the Patriots also signed on Thursday, has experience as a kick returner and punt returner.

Terms of the contract have not yet been reported.
