With Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) and Donte Moncrief (shoulder) out with injuries, Street played 38 of 69 snaps on offense as the team's third receiver. Street will likely return to the bench when Dorsett or Moncrief are cleared for action, however.
Street was signed to the 53-man roster, ESPN reports.
He's not likely to get much playing time but will add depth as this signing likely indicates Donte Moncrief will miss a game or more with a shoulder injury.
Street has joined the Patriots' practice squad.
The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder, who was drafted by Dallas in the fifth round (146th overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft, caught nine passes for 132 yards with one touchdown over 31 NFL contests with the Cowboys. He'll give the Patriots, who are only carrying just four wideouts on their 53-man roster at the moment, some needed depth at the position.
Street was waived by the Cowboys on Saturday.
He failed to make much of an impression during his two years in Dallas, catching only nine passes on 20 targets for 132 yards, and the Cowboys elected to keep Brice Butler and Lucky Whitehead over Street on their 53-man roster. The 2014 fifth round pick could have a hard time finding another job in the NFL.
Street didn't catch either of his two targets in Thursday's preseason finale against the Texans.
A back injury early in August didn't help matters, but Street has been nearly invisible during game action this preseason and is in serious danger of getting cut by the Cowboys given their depth at wide receiver.
