Although minor, the Patriots have made a few roster moves over the last few days.

Listen to your team news NOW.

On Thursday, the Patriots signed restricted free agent offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor at the low level of $2.13 million. He has played in 27 regular-season games and one postseason contest with three starts. Last season in his first year with New England, he played in 10 games as a reserve, seeing most of his playing time on special teams.

Eluemunor figures to compete for a spot on the roster as a backup interior lineman.

Then on Friday, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss, restricted free agent Adam Butler has signed his tender worth $3.26 million. Butler has 62 tackles and 11 sacks in three seasons with the Patriots.

The Patriots are hopeful Butler can continue to develop and turn into a valuable three-down lineman.

Friday was the deadline for restricted free agents to sign their tenders.
