Patriots Sign WR Andre Holmes

Holmes spent most of 2012 on the Cowboys' practice squad



    On Tuesday, the New England Patriots signed former Cowboys’ receiver Andre Holmes, who spent most of 2012 as a member of the practice squad--this according to Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News.

    Holmes, a product of Division-II Hillsdale College, was originally tabbed as a candidate to take over the No. 3 receiver role left vacant by Laurent Robinson at the outset of the season. But he was one of the few players to fail the initial conditioning test in training camp, and never did hit his stride.

    After falling down on the depth chart, Holmes was released by the Cowboys in November before being picked back up and placed on the practice squad, where he stayed. He finishes his Cowboys career with seven appearances, two catches and 11 yards.
