Jake Ingram’s deal with the Patriots is expected to be finalized soon

About Ingram’s contract negotiations, an NFL source said Thursday night:
“the two sides have exchanged numbers, and are hoping to make more progress later this week.” (WEEI)

WEEI Note: “No contract details were provided, but it’s reasonable to think that Ingram will receive something in the neighborhood of a four-year deal — 23 of the 25 players taken in the sixth round who have signed so far got four-year contracts. As for total dollars, Ingram’s worth may be skewed a bit because he’s a special teamer, but a player taken two spots after him — cornerback DeAndre Wright of New Mexico, who went at No. 200 overall to the Giants — got a four-year deal for $1.83 million, which included a $93,009 signing bonus.”

About why they drafted Ingram, Bill Belichick said:
“He’s an athletic guy, a little bit smaller than some of the snappers in the league, but a little bit more athletic than most of the snappers in the league. [He’s] an experienced guy. He’s done that. He can block. He can cover pretty well. His snaps are accurate; they had good velocity. So I think that he will be competitive for that position. I felt like he was a top player for his position in the draft.” (WEEI)
