The Patriots have signed Cadet, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Cadet carried just 10 times for 32 yards in 15 games for the Saints this past season, but he did catch 38 passes for 296 yards and a touchdown in that span, so he'll presumably have an opportunity to help fill the void created by the departure of pass-catching back, Shane Vereen.

Cadet caught two passes on four targets for nine yards in Sunday's season-ending win in Tampa Bay.

In 15 games, Cadet caught 38 passes for 296 yards and a touchdown and also averaged 24 yards per return as the Saints' primary kickoff return man most of the year. Cadet will be a restricted free agent this offseason, so his return to the cap-strapped Saints is up in the air. Should he return and the Saints decide to part ways with veteran pass-catching running back Pierre Thomas, Cadet could be an interesting option in deeper PPR leagues, but he's shown little as a primary ball carrier, with only 11 carries for 37 yards for his career.

Cadet is a healthy inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons, the Saints' official site reports.

Last week, Cadet broke a streak of 10 consecutive contests with at least two targets, earning a measly two snaps on the evening. The development wasn't all that shocking, though, as the Saints' backfield is now healthy, making him expendable in the grand scheme of things.

Cadet caught two passes on two targetsfor 11 yards in Monday night's loss to the Ravens.

With Pierre Thomas back in action, Cadet was relegated to spot duty. Cadet will continue to serve as the Saints' kickoff return man, but as long as Thomas is healthy, playing time will be sparse for Cadet, making him difficult to rely on for fantasy owners.

Cadet (hamstring) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Ravens, the Saints' official site reports.

As is Pierre Thomas, which limits Cadet's upside Monday, with only so many pass plays out of the backfield to go around.

Cadet (hamstring) is probable for Monday's game.

He was a limited participant in Saturday's practice, but will likely be able to take the field against the Ravens. Pierre Thomas (rib/shoulder) is also probable, so Cadet's workload could be scaled back.

Cadet (hamstring) was limited in Friday's practice.

Cadet's exact status for Monday's game against Baltimore is unclear, but the fact that he's practicing in advance of Saturday is a good sign. His workload might be scaled back if Pierre Thomas (shoulder) plays, however.

Cadet had four catches on five targets for 31 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

Cadet also carried the ball once, but was unable to gain a yard, as he did most of his damage through the air once again. Pierre Thomas was able to practice last week, albeit in a limited capacity, so it's possible Cadet's minor role as the Saints' primary receiving back may dissipate as early as next week in a a Monday night tilt against the Ravens.

Cadet carried twice for nine yards and caught three passes on five targets for 18 yards in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

Despite the absence of Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson, Cadet was quiet for the Saints, as Mark Ingram once again dominated the backfield touches. Thomas or Robinson, or both, could be back as early as next week, so Cadet's run of limited fantasy usefulness could be coming to an end shortly. Up next is a Bengals' defense that is among the worst in the league defending both the run and the pass, but Cadet is nothing more than a deep-league flier, even if Thomas and Robinson are once again absent.

Cadet had three catches for 29 yards and two carries for one yard in Thursday's 28-10 win over the Panthers.

Cadet handled most of the passing downs and made a couple of nice plays, but with the Saints protecting a lead for the entire second half, Mark Ingram got 30 carries. Edwin Baker got one meaningless carry at the end of the game, showing no signs of being any threat to Ingram or Cadet. Of course, Cadet will eventually cede most of the passing-down snaps to Pierre Thomas (shoulder), who has not practiced since suffering an injury in Week 7. If Thomas does miss another game, the Saints' Week 10 matchup against San Francisco certainly seems to favor the passing game over Ingram's running.
