Zips football: Hines lands with New England Patriots

By George Thomas Published: April 29, 2013

Former Akron Zips running back Quentin Hines, an undrafted free agent, agreed to terms with the New England Patriots at the conclusion of the weekend’s NFL Draft, according to a source.

Hines, who saw limited action with the Zips gaining 194 yards on 35 carries for a 6.5 average was one of 16 free agents that the Pats signed. He grabbed the attention of NFL teams with freakish numbers in his pro day at UA in which he ran a sub 4.4 40-yard dash and had a standing long jump of more than  11-feet.  He reports to the Patriots in two weeks.
