Default Terrell Reunited with Brady

Pasquarelli
By Len Pasquarelli, ESPN.com

Talented but underachieving wide receiver David Terrell, released by the Chicago Bears on Feb. 28, has reached agreement in principle on a one-year contract with the New England Patriots, a deal that provides the Super Bowl champions with an intriguing deep threat.

Financial details of the contract, which is expected to be signed early this week, were not available. Terrell was entering the final year of his original contract in Chicago when he was released.

Terrell, 26, was courted in free agency by several other teams, among them the New York Giants and Tampa Bay Bucs. Key to his signing with the Patriots, beyond the chance to resuscitate his career with a winning organization, was the opportunity to reunite with quarterback Tom Brady, a former University of Michigan teammate.

Over the past few weeks, Brady has urged New England officials to sign Terrell.

It is not known if the acquisition of Terrell will preclude New England from re-signing wide receiver Troy Brown, released last month by the Patriots for salary cap reasons. A longtime fan favorite in New England, and a player who subjugated his own individual numbers by playing cornerback in 2004 to help the team cope with injuries in the secondary, Brown remains in the free agent market. There has been considerable speculation that Brown might re-join the Patriots at some point.

The Patriots lost No. 3 wideout David Patten, who defected to Washington as an unrestricted free agent, and Terrell may be able to replace him as a deep threat.

I think this is a pretty good signing for the Pats...If anyone can optimize his players' potential, it's Belichick...

I'm not so sure Bellicheck is going to get the most out of Terrell. I'm sure Weis could have gotten a lot of production out of him, but Bellicheck seems to be better suited to get the most out of his defensive players. However, I'm sure Brady loves having a bigger target to throw to out there on the field.

What about Bethel Johnson? With his speed isn't he a deep threat or is he just a KR/PR?
