Folk went 14-of-17 on field goal tries for the Pats last year and nailed all 12 of his extra point attempts. The 35-year-old took the field for seven Patriots regular season games, plus the team’s playoff loss to the Titans. Folk has been somewhat in demand lately – the Browns also met with him recently as they consider competition for second-year pro Austin Seibert.

The Patriots also added some defensive line depth by signing Michael Barnett, an undrafted free agent out of Georgia. Both players will make their case in the coming days as we head towards the roster deadline.
