Patriots signed seventh-round OG Thomas Welch to a four-year contract, including a $69,000 signing bonus.

Welch started out as a tight end at Vanderbilt before moving to tackle as a starter for his final two seasons. His long-term future is probably at guard, but he'll have to put in some time on the practice squad as a rookie.
