WR Joey Galloway To Join Patriots

The Patriots added another wide receiver to the mix. Joey Galloway has agreed to terms Patriots Insider has learned.

Free agent wide receiver Joey Galloway is the latest veteran to sign on with the New England Patriots. The 37, year old speedster agreed to terms on a one-year deal a league source told PatriotsInsider.com Saturday.

Galloway became a free agent after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers opted to release him on February 25th. After five seasons in Florida, the 14-year veteran was back on the street. The Buffalo Bills and the Pittsburgh Steelers both showed interest in Galloway hosting him for visits.

Considered a talented speedster since his days at Ohio State, age and injuries have limited Galloway's performance. He appeared in just nine games (4 starts) for the Buccaneers in 2008. He recorded just 13 catches for 138 yards after posting three 1,000-yard performances in the four years before.

A former first round pick of the Seattle Seahawks in 1995, Galloway has played for just three teams; Seattle (1995-99), Dallas Cowboys (2000-03) and Tampa Bay (2004-08).

Galloway has amassed over 10,000 yards (10,710) on 682 receptions. He has 77 touchdowns to his credit.

The Patriots newest member of the receiver corps is expected to compete with veteran Greg Lewis for the No.3 spot behind Randy Moss and Wes Welker.
