Patriots To Sign WR Bruce Ellington

Bruce Ellington is signing a one-year deal with the Patriots, according to Ian Rapoport of (on Twitter). The Pats met with Ellington and a few other players on Thursday morning. It did not take long for a deal to come together. 

Last year, Ellington had 23 catches for 132 yards in just four games for the Lions, showing what he could do when healthy. Earlier in the season he caught eight balls for 92 yards and a touchdown in less than three full games with the Texans, before Houston waived him with an injury settlement. He latched on in Detroit, but unfortunately the hamstring injury that hampered him in Houston re-emerged while he was with the Lions, landing Ellington on IR in December.

    They’re really stacking the deck…again. But I guess it doesn’t matter unless Edelman goes down

    I guess they struck out on the small white guys (Beasley, Humphries) and had to settle for Ellington. Doesn’t matter anyway, Pats fans will all say “great signing” even if they don’t know who Ellington is.
