FOXBOROUGH, MASSACHUSETTS - SEPTEMBER 01: Devin Ross #17 looks on during New England Patriots Training Camp at Gillette Stadium on September 01, 2020 in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

On Monday, the Patriots filled the final spot in their 90-man roster by signing wide receiver Devin Ross to the active roster. The signing was first reported by ESPN’s Mike Reiss.

This will be Ross’ second stint with the Patriots – the 25-year-old had been on the team’s practice squad since 2019 before being cut last October. Last summer he put together a strong training camp, and made a run at a roster spot before ultimately landing back on the practice squad. He was with the team during minicamp last week on a tryout basis.

Ross joins a wide receiver group that has changed since he was last with the team. New additions Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne currently sit at the top of the projected depth chart, along with Jakobi Meyers. All-Pro punt returner Gunner Olszewski is likely a lock for a spot as well.

The Patriots have now signed both tryout players from last week’s minicamp in Ross and offensive lineman R.J. Prince. While the 90-man roster is now officially full, that includes Patrick Chung, whose retirement has not yet been officially processed by the team.
