The Patriots announced Thursday the signing of wide receiver Jeremy Johnson, a rookie free agent from SMU.

Johnson, who stands 6 feet, 179 pounds, was an All-American Athletic Conference second-team player after leading the Mustangs with 112 catches for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns as a senior in 2013. In his four years at SMU, Johnson finished with 196 receptions for 1,936 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Johnson, 22, reportedly ran a 4.64 40-yard dash, 6.91 three-cone drill and 4.44 short shuttle at SMU’s pro day in March. He also had a solid performance at February’s College All-Star Bowl.

The Patriots, who on Wednesday released offensive lineman R.J. Mattes, are back at the 90-player roster limit.
