Pats add Mills | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

3:03pm EDT 3/15/21

The Patriots have agreed to a 4-year, $24 million deal with DB Jalen Mills, including $9 million guaranteed, per multiple reports. We'll see how Mills fits into New England's defensive plans. He spent his first 4 Eagles seasons as a CB, 3 of those as a starter. Then Mills moved to SS last year after Philly released Malcolm Jenkins. The Pats still have veteran safeties Devin McCourty and Patrick Chung under contract, with Chung set to return this year after opting out for the 2020 season. They added Kyle Dugger in the 2nd round of last year's NFL Draft and played him regularly as a "box" safety over the 2nd half of the season.

Recent Shark Bites

Eagles CB Jalen Mills (ankle) is inactive for today's game against the Giants. That leaves a shaky Philly secondary without its 2 outside starters, with CB Ronald Darby landing on IR with a hip flexor injury. It's a nice matchup for Giants outside WRs Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard.

The Eagles have ruled CB Jalen Mills out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He suffered a foot injury in the Week 8 win over the Jaguars and then didn't practice at all coming out of the bye. We'll see about his status in Week 11.

The Eagles added CB Jalen Mills to the injury report Thursday, when a hamstring issue limited his participation. HC Doug Pederson told reporters Friday morning that he expects Mills to be fine to face Carolina on Sunday, though. That should keep Mills at his usual level of IDP consideration. His hamstring could add upside to Carolina outside WRs Devin Funchess and Torrey Smith, though.
