The New England Patriots announced on Wednesday that they've re-signed undrafted rookie wide receiver Isaiah Zuber. ESPN's Mike Reiss first reported the news, which comes four days after the team had Zuber back in for a visit.

Zuber signed with the Patriots shortly after the 2020 NFL Draft, then was released as part of the team's roster cutdown to 80 players. However, a wave of players deciding to opt out of the 2020 season opened up a roster spot for Zuber to reclaim.

The rookie receiver played three seasons at Kansas State before playing his senior year at Mississippi State. He caught 14 passes for 211 yards and two touchdowns as a senior for the Bulldogs.

Zuber joins former Auburn receiver Will Hastings as the second undrafted free agent at the position to re-join the Patriots after being released. Former Miami wideout Jeff Thomas remains on the roster. The Pats also recently re-signed undrafted QB Brian Lewerke.
