Leigh Bodden’s signature on a Patriots contract will mark the end to an odd few days. After spending over a day in Houston being wooed by the Texans front office and coaching staff, it seemed that the veteran CB was slipping through the Patriots fingers. Bill Belichick and the rest of the Patriots brass were obviously able to match whatever the Texans were bringing to the table.
Bodden’s deal is for 4 years, worth $22 million dollars. $10m is guaranteed.
Bodden led the Patriots with five interceptions, returning one of them for a touchdown. His strong play in run support, sure tackling, and tight coverage were all factors that led to the Patriots bringing him back.
