The New England Patriots signed defensive lineman Casey Walker on Friday.

Walker, 25, spent part of the 2014 season on New England’s 53-man roster and practice squad, seeing action in five games (one start) for the Patriots and finishing with 10 tackles and one sack.

The 6-foot-1, 340-pounder originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent in 2013 with the Carolina Panthers out of Oklahoma. He spent part of his rookie season on the Panthers’ practice squad and began the 2014 season on their practice squad before being signed by New England to the 53-man roster on Sept. 27.

Walker was released by the Patriots on Nov. 20 and signed to the practice squad on Nov. 22. He was signed by the Baltimore Ravens to the 53-man roster from the Patriots’ practice squad on Dec. 16 and played in one regular-season game. Walker was released by Baltimore on Aug. 5.
