The Patriots have added another veteran hungry for a title to the mix.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports Waters and the Patriots agreed to a contract on Sunday morning. The move can’t become official until another roster spot is opened later in the day.
By signing Waters now, the Patriots guarantee his salary for the season. That’s a sign that they expect him to have a significant role. (It’s also a sign they are very banged up at guard other than Logan Mankins.)
Waters made five Pro Bowls in Kansas City before getting cut after last season. He was the 2009 NFL Man of the Year.
