Patriots signed TE Visanthe Shiancoe to a one-year, $1.2 million contract.
Profootballtalk reports Shiancoe will receive $400,000 guaranteed and $800,000 in incentives, typical of a veteran signing just prior to training camp. The addition of Shiancoe suggests the Patriots aren't counting on Daniel Fells (leg) to contribute any time soon. The Eagles, lacking veteran depth at the position, had also offered Shiancoe a contract. Don't look for fantasy value behind Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez in New England.
