Spann saw time in a career-high 10 games with the Patriots last year and registered four tackles on special teams and one defensive stop.

As a senior at Louisiana-Lafayette, Spann started all 11 games at cornerback and had 68 tackles (36 solo) along with a team-high four interceptions. He played two years at Louisiana-Lafayette after transferring from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.

Spann, who attended El Camino High School in Oceanside, Calif., was born on Feb. 22, 1983.
