The New England Patriots are reportedly set to sign Olympic sprinter Jeff Demps, according to the NFL Network.

Demps won a silver medal at the 2012 London Olympics as a part of the U.S. men's 4-by-100 meter relay team.

Demps spent four years as a running back with the University of Florida but passed on the NFL draft last year to pursue his track career.
