The agent for the players issued the following statement:
"Despite an earlier report, Eric Kettani and Tyree Barnes have not signed free agent contracts with the New England Patriots or any other NFL Team. I have had some discussions with the Patriots regarding the possibility along with several other teams but nothing has been signed."
