Patriots Sign Punter Sauerbrun
"We looked at all our options, and feel like this one is the best one for the football team," coach Bill Belichick said in his Friday press conference. "It's what I said earlier in the week we would do, and that's what we tried to do. Do what's best for the football team. That's always number one."
Sauerbrun, 33, will be the third punter for the Patriots this season. Josh Miller, the team's normal starter, injured his shoulder mid season and was placed on injured reserve. Walter was signed to replace Miller, but suffered an injury of his own. After Walter injured his leg against the Texans, the team worked out some free agents, namely Thomas Malone (Rookie -USC) and Sean Landeta (UFA – Eagles). Malone was signed to the Patriots practice squad.
In addition to Sauerbrun, the Patriots have two punters on the practice squad in Malone and Danny Baugher (Rookie – Arizona).
