After claiming two wide receivers -- Amara Darboh and Chad Hansen -- and adding another to the practice squad -- Riley McCarron -- on Sunday, the Patriots don't appear to be done adding depth at the position.

According to Pro Football Weekly's Eric Edholm, the Patriots have signed wide out Jace Billingsley to the practice squad.

The 25-year-old stands 5-foot-9, 189 pounds and is a quick, shifty player with special teams experience. He signed with the Lions as an undrafted free agent in 2016 and has bounced back and forth between the active roster and practice squad.

Billingsley played collegiately at Eastern Oregon and in his last season he finished fourth in the country with 1,931 all-purpose yards, 863 rushing yards, and 506 receiving yards.

With the new addition, the Patriots practice squad currently is at nine players: OL Cole Croston, QB Danny Etling, OL James Ferentz, DL Trent Harris, WR Riley McCarron, DT Vincent Valentine, RB Ralph Webb and CB Jomal Wiltz.
