The Patriots have signed Rutgers defensive back Jeremy Deering as an undrafted free agent, per a league source.

Deering showed great positional versatility over the course of his college career — at Rutgers, he™s lined up as a wildcat quarterback, wide receiver, running back, defensive back and kick returner.

However, the 6-foot-1, 200-pounder settled into the role of free safety last year — he had 39 tackles and a pick in in 10 starts at the position with the Scarlet Knights in 2013.

The move was first reported by Dan Duggan of NJ.com.
