The New England Patriots re-signed offensive lineman Tyronne Green on Thursday.

Green was originally signed by the Patriots as an unrestricted free agent from San Diego on May 13, but was released at the end of May.

The 27-year-old Green spent his first four NFL seasons with San Diego (2009-12). The 6-foot-2, 316-pounder has played in 41 career games (28 starts) at both guard positions.

New England also released offensive lineman Matt Stankiewitch.
