The Patriots have two of their twelve 2010 draft picks signed under contract. The Pats signed sixth-round pick Ted Larsen (center) last week to a 4-year, $1.87 million deal. Today, the Patriots came to terms with third-round pick Taylor Price (wide receiver). Price signed a 4-year, $3.35 million deal. Despite being under contract, league rules will keep him away from New England until OU is done for the school year, which is June 11. Price looks to try and become part of the WR rotation that has some question marks with Wes Welker likely out for the beginning of the season.
In other rookie news, tight end Aaron Hernandez has changed his number from 46 to 85. Number 85 was previously held by TE Robbie Agnone, but he was released late last week.
