The New England Patriots added a Rutgers product on Thursday.

According to the NFL transaction wire, the organization agreed to terms with free-agent linebacker Jonathan Freeny.

Freeny, 25, was a member of the Scarlet Knights football team for four seasons before going undrafted in 2011. He spent three alongside future Patriots safety Devin McCourty, as well as two alongside safety Duron Harmon, cornerback Logan Ryan and receiver Tim Wright.

The 6-foot-2, 254-pound defensive end turned linebacker has since played in 44 NFL games as a member of the Miami Dolphins, recording 42 tackles and one sack.

A special-teamer and restricted free agent, Freeny was not tendered a contract by Miami before the start of the new league year.
