Former Pitt receiver Devin Street joins New England Patriots

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

It's hard to believe but Devin Street will be entering his fourth NFL season this fall. If things work out, he'll be playing for the New England Patriots.

Street was picked up by New England through a waiver claim earlier today.

The former Pitt receiver spent his first two years with the team that drafted him - the Dallas Cowboys. Last year, he played for the Indianapolis Colts.

This is actually Street's second go-round with New England. He briefly signed with the team's practice squad last offseason but the Colts added him to their active roster.

Street definitely hasn't lit the world on fire since joining the NFL. Through three seasons, he has only ten catches for 152 yards and one touchdown. But he's also still only 26 and there are no guarantees as a fifth-round pick, which Street was. If he lands on a roster for a fourth straight season, that would be an achievement in itself.
