New England guard Robert Gallery retired Saturday, 4 1/2 months after signing with Patriots as a free agent.

The 2003 Outland Trophy winner at Iowa as the nation's best interior lineman, he was drafted second overall by Oakland and spent seven seasons with the Raiders. The 31-year-old lineman spent last season with Seattle.

The Patriots also signed defensive back Derrick Martin and fullback Kareem Huggins on Saturday, and placed fullback Tony Fiammetta on the exempt/left squad list.
