New England Patriots sign Olympic medalist Jeff Demps

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Patriots have agreed to terms with Olympic silver medalist Jeff Demps, who played running back at Florida but was not drafted by an NFL team because he said he wanted to focus on his track career.

The Patriots issued a press release Friday announcing the signing of the 22-year-old sprinter.

Demps earned the Olympic silver medal in the 400-meter relay as part of the team that finished second to Jamaica at the London Games last week.
