Pats Sign Deltha O’Neal

Update: The Patriots have signed Deltha O’Neal to a 1-year contract.

According to Sirius NFL Radio, the Patriots are hosting former Cincinnati Bengal CB Deltha O’Neal today in Foxborough. The former Pro-Bowl corner recorded 10 interceptions during the 2005 NFL campaign, tying Ty Law for the league lead. In 2007, O’Neal recorded 52 tackles and snagged one pick. O’Neal was a first-round pick out of California for the Denver Broncos. Coach Bill Belichick on the signing:

“He is a very athletic corner, good ball skills, pretty big guy who goes up and plays a lot of press coverage, has done that in the past. Physical player. Good tackler. Good interceptor. Returner. We’ve seen the back of his jersey on that a couple of times.”

If this is a signing to provide depth to a thin defensive backfield, O’Neal would be great. If he is ready, we’d love to see Terrence Wheatley start the process of becoming the next great Patriots cornerback.
