Cole is a three year veteran free agent who played for the New York Jets from 2009-11. Originally signed by the Oakland Raiders as a rookie free agent in 2007, the Northwestern product bounced around the league before landing in New York.
The 5-foot-10m 192-pound defensive back, spent 2007 with the Tennessee Titans, before joining the New Orleans Saints in 2008 and the Jets in 2009.
Cole, 28, has appeared in 37 games with one start. He has 14 career tackles, 2 interceptions and one punt return for a touchdown. As a special teams contributor, he has recorded 45 tackles.
The additions indicate that the Patriots are adding players who could play a role with New England. Neither is expected to challenge for a starting role immediately.
