Patriots reach a deal with Will Svitek

The Patriots are in an uncertain spot with free agent tackle Sebastian Vollmer, but they added some depth to the position.

According to Field Yates of ESPNBoston.com, the Patriots have signed former Falcons tackle Will Svitek.

Svitek missed last season with an arm injury, but started 10 games for the Falcons in 2011 when starter Sam Baker struggled.

Svitek’s a solid depth addition, but not the kind of player you want replacing Vollmer, who remains unsigned.
