Patriots sign TE Troy Niklas

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

The New England Patriots have added to their tight end stable by agreeing to a one-year deal with former second-round pick Troy Niklas.

Fantasy Impact: 

Niklas will be entering his fifth season, but hasn't made much of an impact due to injuries. He's caught 19 total passes in four years, with 11 of those catches coming last season. If Niklas sticks around in New England he will likely compete with Dwayne Allen for the second tight end role behind Rob Gronkowski.
