Mesko, who was drafted by the Patriots in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Michigan, was released on Saturday after he was beaten out by rookie Ryan Allen.
In his first three seasons in the league, Mesko has registered a 44.2 yard average and a net of 40.7
The signing of Mesko now means second-year punter Drew Butler will be waived. Butler appeared to have beaten out Brian Moorman for the job, but the team obviously sees Mesko as a long-term upgrade.
