    ESPN: Pats reach agreement with McGowan - Reiss' Pieces - Boston.com

    Who again?

    This is mighty interesting. Is it unusual to toss a 2 year deal at camp fodder?

    Are we setting up to play some kind of eleven DB defense? hehe

    He was another one of those promising safeties a couple of years ago. Didn't realise he was still out there.

    Depends. Two years and a large SB, yes. Two years and a small SB, no.

    Case in point: they signed Guyton last year to a two-year deal with a $12K signing bonus.

    Patriots Sign S McGowan

    Ian's Daily Blog - ESPN’s John Clayton reports the Patriots have*signed safety Brandon McGowan to a two year contract.McGowan, 25, spent the past four years with the Chicago Bears.* His signing, along with the addition of 2nd round draft choice*Patrick Chung,*may signal that the door may be closing on a return for Rodney Harrison.

    Re: Pats sign safety Brandon McGowan (2 Year Deal).

    We play a lot of 3 safety formations. You need 4-5 safety`s if we are going to do that

    sander,merriweather and chung are the top 3 . so tank and mcgowan will be fightinig for the last spot

    Strange, nothing from the Pats Twitter on this ! Recently, everything showed up there just before most news outlets report it.

    Re: Pats sign safety Brandon McGowan (2 Year Deal).

    This guy has a shot at making the team. He was a former starter for the Bears.

    Only 25 years old. Nice to see a former Maine player on the team.

    Re: Pats sign safety Brandon McGowan (2 Year Deal).

    He has had a lot of injuries, in '07 when healthy he had 50 tackles, couple of interceptions, 3 Passes defensed..

    Keep contending that this team will not be on the bottom in Red Zone DEFENSE this year...

    Re: Pats sign safety Brandon McGowan (2 Year Deal).

    Makes sense to bring in some more competition. Right now we've got Meriweather, Sanders, Chung, and maybe Spann? as our top four safeties. We bring in an UDFA, plus this guy, see if they can beat out Spann for that fourth spot. If not, oh well.

    Springs could well feature on the depth chart there as well

    Plus Springs, Tank and maybe even Harrison

    Seems were quite well loaded there TBH but it looks a good pick up if he's healthy

    Wow, don't know why I forgot Tank... I'm not convinced Rodney is coming back though. I hope so for sentiments sake, but I just can't see it happening.

    With the numbers there now I can't see it, esp after both McGowan and Sanders signing plus year deals

    Re: Pats sign safety Brandon McGowan (2 Year Deal).

    Not at all. Kinda depends on the numbers and if any is guarnteed.

    The absolute best deal for a team is to sign the player to a 4 year deal at league min.

    If he gets cut at camp the cost to the team is what ever needs to be paid as part of camp compensation. If he turns out to be great the team has his rights for 4 years for peanuts.

    With a UDFA project that is more likely to make contribution year 2 instead of year 1, you don't want to have him taking up a roster or PS space for a year and then sign elsewhere the following year.

    Nice to see a regional player make the team! Go Black Bears!

    Alas, this spells the end for Rodney. Pity!
