The New England Patriots and free-agent tight end Nate Byham have agreed to terms on a contract, according to a league source. Byham will fill the 90th and final spot on the roster, pending a physical.

More of a blocking tight end, the 6-foot-4, 264-pound Byham played the last two seasons for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers under coach Greg Schiano, who is a close friend of Patriots coach Bill Belichick. Byham totaled six receptions for 56 yards and one touchdown in 15 games with the Buccaneers.
