The 28-year-old is batting for a similar reserve linebacker/special teams role with the Colts.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Passes physical, off PUP list

    King (undisclosed) has passed his physical and has been activated off the PUP list Saturday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports. King has dealt with numerous injuries to start his NFL career, but the 28-year-old will look for a fresh start as he returns to training camp healthy. King is firmly supplanted behind Adrian Phillips and Kyle Dugger on the depth chart, but he will have an opportunity to make a name for himself on special teams.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Will miss first six games

    King (quadriceps) was placed on the reserve/PUP list Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. King is still healing from the torn quadriceps he suffered in August of 2019, and he was moved from the active/PUP list. The shift means King will miss at least the first six games of the year and won't count against the team's active roster unless he's activated.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Inks two-year extension with New England

    King agreed Thursday with the Patriots on a two-year, $2.6 million contract extension, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports. A core special-teams contributor for the Patriots since joining the club as an undrafted rookie in 2015, King will earn a pay raise for his quality work in kick coverage the past three seasons. Barring significant injuries to the secondary, however, don't expect the Patriots to turn to King for duties on defense in 2018. All 535 of his career regular-season snaps have come on special teams.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Sporting non-contact jersey

    King (undisclosed) wore a red, noncontact jersey during Tuesday's practice, Erik Scalavino of the Patriots' official site reports. It's unclear what's ailing the special teamer, but it seems like it could just be a precautionary measure. King wasn't exactly vying for a significant defensive role anyway, so as long as this isn't a long-term injury, it shouldn't hurt his chances of making the 53-man roster.
