New England Patriots free agency: RB Rex Burkhead signs with team

In his career, he's rushed for 375 yards and three touchdowns while catching 34 passes for 288 yards and a touchdown. Blount is now an unsigned free agent despite scoring 18 touchdowns in 2016.

Hill didn't play in Week 17 against Baltimore because of a knee injury, and the Bengals gave Burkhead a start. However, he's only had two performances where he's carried the ball more than 10 times. In 2015, he was a Fantasy standout before suffering a torn ACL in Week 9.

In addition to two straight double-digit special teams tackle seasons, Burkhead rushed for 344 yards with two touchdowns a year ago, adding another 145 yards on 17 receptions. His best game was Week 15 at Denver when he had 18 carries for 95 yards and two catches for 9 yards.

Even so, Burkhead has since appeared in all 16 regular season games in each of the last two seasons en route to recording a single-season career-high 74 carries in 2016-2017. And now White and Lewis have plenty of company with Burkhead.

Burkhead went underused in Cincinnati, which is why this signing could be compared to the addition of wide receiver Chris Hogan from the Buffalo Bills last season.

CB House returning to Packers for second stint
He had a career-high four starts last season, and finished that season with 30 tackles, two passes defended and one sack. The Packers previously declined their fifth-year option on Jones that is built into every first-round pick's contract.

As for features? Well, this is Sonos, and typically the Playbase makes up for a shortage of physical elements with software. The company's wireless speakers offer a seamless way to stream high-quality music in one room or throughout an entire home.

Snow predicted for Friday commute
Sunday night: A chance of rain before 2am, then a chance of rain and snow between 2am and 5am, then a chance of snow after 5am. The main threat with these storms will be the potential for large hail, according to the National Weather Service.

The Patriots remained busy on Tuesday by adding a running back. Burkhead helped out in the passing game like Bernard.

Don't be surprised if Burkhead ends up as the starter, which will obviously increase his value and drop Lewis in the rankings.

The Patriots heightened their competition in the offensive backfield.

The running back market has been very weird so far in the 2017 National Football League offseason. It's already messy enough.
