The Tennessean reported on Saturday that the Patriots signed former Tennessee Titans safety, Aric Morris on Friday to a 2-year contract.
The Titans drafted Morris in 2000, and he started in just 10 games in three years, and fell out of the teams plans completely last season after the team drafted Tank Williams.
According to the newspaper his two-year deal includes minimum salaries in 2003 and 2004, along with a $25,000 signing bonus. His agent also told the newspaper that through incentives, including a $75,000 workout bonus and $200,000 in playing-time incentives, Morris could easily make $700,000 per season.
A fifth-round draft pick, Morris played in all 18 games for the Titans in 2002. He totaled nine defensive tackles and was second on the team with 18 special-teams tackles. His best season was in 2001 when he started 10 games and posted 46 tackles.
