(Chuck Cook-USA Today Sports)[/caption] It may not be a move Patriots fans have been looking for, but the team has made one. According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, the Patriots have agreed to a 1-year deal with former Saints linebacker Ramon Humber. Humber has been a top backup and core special teams player with the Saints. [UPDATE 5:30 p.m.: The Patriots made the signing official.] Humber is 28 years old and has spent the last six seasons with the Saints. His best year came in 2014 when he had 38 tackles. He's played 13 or more games in every year of his NFL career, which includes starting six games in 2014. From a Patriots perceptive, this may be a sign that Nate Ebner might not be returning as he seems to fill the same role Ebner played over the years. For more Patriots news, visit weei.com/patriots.
