Patriots Agree to Terms with DB Jalen MillsMark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

New England added another player to their defense on Monday, agreeing to terms with Eagles free-agent defensive back Jalen Mills.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Mills agreed to a 4-year deal worth $24-million including $9-million guaranteed.

Mills provides some versatility to New England’s defense, having played both cornerback and safety during his tenure in Phildelphia.  He played in 15 games last season, finishing with 1.5 sacks and an interception, as well as 74 tackles.

He was a free agent prior to the start of last season and signed a one-year, $4-million deal to stay with the Eagles. This time around, he’s obviously received a pretty good raise to come to New England.

It’s the third contract given to a Drew Rosenhaus represented player to sign with the Patriots on Monday, with tight end Jonnu Smith and nose tackle Davon Godchaux having each joined the team.  Rosenhaus also represents offensive tackle Trent Brown, who also recently joined the club.
