Patriots, Dennard reach contract agreement

The Patriots and seventh-round draft pick Alfonzo Dennard agreed to a four-year contract, a league source said.

Dennard, a cornerback out of Nebraska, fell in the draft after being arrested just days before the draft for allegedly assaulting a police officer outside a bar in Lincoln, Neb. He was considered by many to be no worse than a third-round pick before his arrest.

He is the third member of the Patriots’ draft class to sign, following Tavon Wilson and Jeremy Ebert.
