Pro Bowl guard Brian Waters has reached a deal with the Patriots that will give New England the help it desperately needs at right guard.
According to the Patriots, Waters worked out for the Patriots on Saturday, and then reached an agreement with the team on Sunday. He signed a two-year deal that could be worth up to $5.5 million.
New England continued making some of the biggest moves around the league on cutdown weekend. The team cut safety Brandon Meriweather and running back Sammy Morris, and then signed Waters, a longtime standout in Kansas City.
According to the new CBA, any veteran on an opening-day roster has his salary guaranteed for the season.
New England has spent this summer making blockbuster moves by stockpiling veterans who have made their name known around the league. Waters joins Chad Ochocinco, Albert Haynesworth and Shaun Ellis among others.
