FOXBOROUGH, MASS. (AP) - The New England Patriots have re-signed four players, including reserve defensive lineman Mike Wright, and signed free agent center Al Johnson.

Johnson is a former starter for the Dallas Cowboys and he played in a reserve role for Miami last season.

The 27-year-old Wright became an unrestricted free agent after playing in all 16 games last season, including two starts at defensive end in place of an injured Ty Warren.
