The Patriots have apparently decided to go the Filene's Basement route in free agency to fill needs at cornerback. Yesterday, New England signed Fernando Bryant to a one-year deal.
Terms of the contract were not released.
A nine-year veteran who spent the last four seasons playing for the Detroit Lions, Bryant joins seasoned cornerbacks Jason Webster and Lewis Sanders, both of whom also signed one-year deals with the Patriots, as free agents brought in following the departures of Asante Samuel (Philadelphia Eagles) and Randall Gay (New Orleans Saints).
All three come with starting experience and are low-risk, potential high-reward additions. Full Story – Globehttp://www.boston.com/sports/footba.../veteran_bryant_lands_in_the_patriots_corner/
