After being MIA for the first couple weeks of training camp, the New England Patriots reported on Wednesday that restricted free agent running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis has agreed to his RFA tender and will report to camp.
Green-Ellis had a breakout year with New England last season, rushing for 1,008 yards and 13 touchdowns, becoming the first Pats’ running back to break the 1,000-yard barrier since Corey Dillon ran for 1635 yards in 2004.
Green-Ellis appeared in each 16 of New England’s games for the first time in his three-year career, starting in 11 of the games. He averaged 4.2 yards per carry.
The team also announced a few additional signings, bringing unrestricted free agent center Chris Morris, free agent offensive lineman Jonathan Compas and rookie free agent running back Richard Medin into the fold.
