The Patriots have brought back another one of their free agents.

According to the NFL transaction wire, Shilique Calhoun has re-signed with the team.

In 15 games last season, his first in New England, he finished with seven tackles. Calhoun signed with the Patriots last offseason after spending his first three seasons in the NFL with the Raiders.

While not a huge signing by any means, he has the potential to make a take a second year jump since he knows the system well.

Calhoun plays a hybrid defensive end/outside linebacker role, while he can also contribute on special teams.
