Patriots to Matt Stankiewitch: “Baby Come Back”

Former Penn State center Matt Stankiewitch has been re-signed by the team that cut him last week.

According to Stankiewitch, he was cut from the New England Patriots during training camp last week after injuring his hamstring during a conditioning test. However, the Patriots have changed their minds, and have re-signed Stankiewitch to fill one of the team’s two open roster spots.

The Patriots are notorious for this sort of thing — football fans may remember Ross Ventrone, who was either signed, promoted or released by the team 21 times during the 2011 season — but it looks as though Stankiewitch will be in Foxboro as long as he stays healthy. There is no word on whether or not Stankiewitch will suit up and play on Friday for New England’s first preseason game against the Eagles.

Unfortunately, there’s no word on Stankiewitch’s fellow undrafted free agent  Stephon Morris who was cut by the Patriots this week. According to a tweet by Morris that has since been deleted, he too needs to keep healthy.

“You’re a very talented young player who can play in this league. That’s proven just get healthy and keep us updated”.

There are rumors circulating around that Morris may catch on with a team soon, but for now, nothing.
