ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that former Eagles DB Jalen Mills is headed to the New England Patriots on a four-year, $24 million deal with $9 million guaranteed. The deal now means the Patriots have spent more guaranteed money this offseason than they have in any other in the past decade.
Guess Bill Belichick took that Tom Brady championship personally, didn’t he?
