The Patriots announced that they have signed 7th Round draft pick Brandon Deaderick. The former Alabama defensive end joins many of his fellow 2010 Draft Picks in having signed, including Taylor Price and Zoltan Mesko.
According to Brian McIntyre, Deaderick inked a 4-year contract worth just over $1.8 million. He will receive a $40k signing bonus. Deaderick, who overcame some serious off the field issues while at Alabama, looks to compete for a spot as a 5-technique defensive end.
