Your Monday afternoon signings roundup

Most signings get their own post.  When they don’t, we round them up in our daily transaction roundup.

(Note: This is not actually a daily feature.  We made that up.)

1. Adam Caplan of reports the Giants signed tight end Ben Patrick to a one-year deal.  Kevin Boss remains a free agent and this gives the Giants some insurance at the position.

2. The Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys will bring back defensive end Jason Hatcher.  With Marcus Spears also back in the mix, Dallas’ defensive line didn’t change as much as anticipated.  ESPNDallas’ Calvin Watkins reports Hatcher got $2.5 million to sign on three-year deal.

3. The Saints brought back Zach Strief, who often acted as a sixth offensive lineman last season.  Mike Triplette of the New Orleans Times-Picayune had the news.
