The Patriots announced Thursday evening that they have re-signed WR Mathew Slater and signed DT Marcus Harrison. Terms of the contracts were not announced.

Slater, 26, is a veteran of four NFL seasons with the Patriots. He has been utilized as a wide receiver, kickoff returner, special-teams player and on defense at safety during his NFL career. He earned his first Pro Bowl berth as a special-teams player in 2011 after leading the team in special-teams tackles with 17.

The 6-0, 200-pounder was originally drafted by the team in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL draft out of UCLA. During his four seasons with the Patriots, he has totaled 44 special-teams tackles, returned 25 kickoffs for 478 yards and has caught one pass for 46 yards.

Harrison, 27, was originally drafted in 2008 by the Bears in the third round out of Arkansas. During his 37 career games over three seasons with the Bears, Harrison amassed 55 tackles, three sacks and three passes defensed. The 6-3, 316 pound lineman was released by Chicago on Sept. 3, 2011. He was signed by the Patriots as a free agent on Oct. 14 before being released on Oct. 15.
