FOXBOROUGH -- Maurice Harris being released wasn't the only Patriots roster move Sunday.

Listen to your team news NOW.

According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, the team has signed linebacker Scooby Wright and running back Robert Martin. In the corresponding moves, defensive end Keionta Davis has been released and Brandon King has been placed on injured reserve. King reportedly tore his quad last Thursday, so that isn't much of a surprise, while Davis was at the bottom of the depth chart.

Wright was drafted in the sixth round of the 2016 draft by the Browns. He's also spent some time with the Cardinals where he played in 13 total games.

Martin was signed as a UDFA by the Giants last year and he spent the entire season on the practice squad.

Both players are viewed as depth pieces and have a long shot of making the roster.
