The New England Patriots announced the re-signing of free agent punter Tom Malone. Could this be a sign that the team isn't entirely satisfied with the performance at the position?

The New England Patriots announced the signing of free agent punter Tom Malone yesterday. Terms of the deal were not available.

Malone re-joins the roster after being released May 5, 2009. The USC product is in his fourth tour with the Patriots having spent time on the team's practice squad in 2006, training camp in 2007, and the practice squad again in 2008.

Malone returns after the team released rookie punter Aaron Perez last week. Perez, a UCLA product, was signed after a tryout at the team's rookie minicamp in May. He was released on Friday.

With Malone back on the roster, the Patriots now have a strong leg to compete for the starting duties with incumbent Chris Hanson.
