Patriots, Danny Aiken Agree To One-Year Deal

The Patriots have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with long snapper Danny Aiken, according to’s Mike Reiss (via Twitter). Aiken had been scheduled to hit restricted free agency.

Aiken, 25, will almost certainly be signed to a minimum salary deal. For a player with his three years of NFL experience, a minimum one-year deal would be worth $645K, which isn’t bad money for someone who plays exclusively on special teams. As Reiss notes (via Twitter), the team now has all three of its specialists under contract for 2014 prior to free agency.
