The Patriots have signed WR Dorin Dickerson to their practice squad, the team announced Wednesday.
Dickerson, in his second season out of Pittsburgh, was orginially drafted by the Texans in the seventh round of the 2010 draft. He played mainly on special teams during his rookie season with Houston.
This season, Dickerson was cut by the Texans after training camp. He also had a three-day stint with the Steelers' practice squad before Week Two.
