The Patriots have agreed to terms on a four-year contract with second-round draft pick Tavon Wilson, a source confirms.
The deal is expected to be finalized on Saturday. Wilson was the 48th overall selection in last month's draft. The 47th selection (Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner) and 49th selection (Chargers DL Kendall Reyes) had agreed to deals in the previous days, likely accelerating the process to get Wilson's deal done.
According to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times and Scout.com, who first reported the agreement, the deal is worth $4.217 million, with a $1.507 million signing bonus.
