The Patriots have reportedly added another running back to their backfield. According to ESPN's Field Yates, New England is signing former Bengal Jeremy Hill. He was reportedly in Foxboro for a visit Friday.

The 25-year-old has spent his first four years in the league with the Bengals. Hill is a duel threat back, as he can run in between the tackles and catch passes out of the backfield.

Hill played in just seven games this past season after going on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

In his four years in the league he's run for over 2,800 yards, including 1,124 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie. He's also hauled in 67 passes for 484 yards.

Hill could be Dion Lewis' replacement, as he signed with the Titans this week. The team could also move on from Mike Gillislee if they wanted to, as well.
