Bradley Fletcher Lands With the Patriots
Today, the Patriots signed the former Eagle, to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.
Fletcher had a rough two year stint with the Eagles, he was was routinely picked on by opposing quarterbacks, and was one of the main reasons the Eagles spent $63 million to bring in Byron Maxwell. Over the last two seasons in Philly, he recorded just three interceptions and was one of the most maligned players on the Eagles roster. In 2014, he allowed nine TDs leading to his departure.
Due to his coverage issues, the 6-foot-0, 200-pound Fletcher could be signed at a significant discount for somebody looking for a bigger corner. However, in the NFL east which features Dez Bryant, Odell Beckham Jr., DeSean Jackson and more, the Eagles needed a significant upgrade over Fletcher.
The Patriots have also reportedly met with fellow corners Terence Newman, Robert McClain and Tarell Brown. They must find two corners to replace last years starting duo of Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner who are no longer with the team.
