Cornerback Bradley Fletcher was released by the Patriots on Saturday, ESPN's Field Yates reports. Fletcher hasn't played since Week 2 when he picked up four tackles and a forced fumble in a win over the Bills, but has since fallen to No. 5 on the depth chart. He could catch on with another team desperate for some help in the secondary.
Free agent cornerback Bradley Fletcher, who visited the Patriots on Tuesday, is signing with the team, reports ESPN.com. It's a one-year deal worth up to $2.5 million, according to the National Football Post. Fletcher, 28, had 61 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble in 15 games with the Eagles last year. He has eight interceptions in his six-year career and could start in New England, which lost shutdown corner Darrelle Revis to the Jets in free agency.
Free agent cornerbacks Bradley Fletcher and Tarell Brown were among the players who visited the Patriots on Tuesday, reports ESPN.com. Fletcher spent the past two seasons with the Eagles, recording 131 total tackles and three interceptions. Brown played 14 games for the Raiders last year, making 55 tackles.
The Eagles declared quarterback Nick Foles (collarbone), cornerback Bradley Fletcher (hip), safety Jerome Couplin, wideout Jeff Maehl, offensive linemen Dennis Kelly and Julian Vandervelde, and defensive end Taylor Hart inactive for Sunday's game at the Giants. With Fletcher inactive, corner Nolan Carroll will start.
Eagles quarterback Nick Foles will miss the final game of the season with a collarbone injury. It will be Foles' eighth straight game out after suffering the injury Nov. 2 against the Texans. Cornerback Bradley Fletcher is also questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants witha a hip injury. Jordan Matthews (knee), Beau Allen (shoulder), Brandon Bair (knee), Trent Cole (hand), Mychal Kendricks (ankle), Chris Maragos (Hamstring) and Casey Matthews (non-injury related) are all considered probable for the game. The Eagles are 3-point underdogs against the Giants Sunday.
