The New England Patriots have announced that they’ve signed offensive lineman Jon Halapio and tight end Bear Pascoe. In addition, the team has placed defensive back Nate Ebner on the reserve/did not report list.

The 25-year-old Halapio was drafted by the Patriots in the 2014 NFL Draft. The former Florida Gator hasn’t played in any NFL games.

After being released by the Patriots in 2014 at the end of training camp, he spend the final few weeks of the 2014 season on the Denver Broncos practice squad. During the following off-season, he signed with the Arizona Cardinals, before being released right before the start of the season.

The 30-year-old Pascoe has spent seven seasons in the league. He spent 2009-13 with the New York Giants, the 2014 season with the Atlanta Falcons and last season with the Detroit Lions.

He was originally a sixth-round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. He was released by the team at the end of training camp that season.

He signed on with the New York Giants practice squad, before making the roster for the final weeks of the season. In 2014, he signed with the Falcons as an unrestricted free agent.

Pascoe also signed with the Chicago Bears as a free agent in 2015. However, at the end of training camp, he was released and signed with the Lions late in the season.

He’s appeared in 85 regular-season games, including 34 starts. He had 40 receptions for 336 yards and two touchdowns.

He’s also appeared in four postseason games, where he had five receptions for 39 yards and a touchdown.

The 27-year-old Ebnar did not report, because he’s participating in the 2016 Olympic games with the U.S. Rugby team. The team will get a roster exemption, while he’s competing in Rio.
