Gallery, who will be 32 when the 2012 season begins, started 12 games in 2011 for Seattle, missing time due to a pair of injuries. It was his first season with the Seahawks after spending seven years with the Raiders, who selected him second overall in the 2004 NFL Draft. The Seahawks, who had signed
Gallery to a three-year deal last July, released him following the season.
The Patriots, meanwhile, are facing uncertainty on their offensive line, as starting left tackle Matt Light is considering retirement. In addition right guard Brian Waters said that he had to weigh his football future following the Patriots' loss to the Giants in last month's Super Bowl. Gallery, who has played both tackle and guard during his NFL career, gives the Patriots flexibility to respond to the possible retirement of either player.
Financial terms of Gallery's deal with New England have not yet been released
