Sam Aiken Signs With Patriots

Considered one of the top special teams players in the league, Sam Aiken has signed a free agent contract with the New England Patriots after playing five seasons in Buffalo. A 6-2, 215-pound wide receiver, Aiken still holds the UNC single-season receiving yards mark at Carolina with 990 in 2003. A native of Kenansville, N.C., Aiken has 19 career receptions, but 61 special teams tackles in 64 games. (Tar Heel Blue)
