The Patriots made it official today, announcing the signing of second-round draft pick Tavon Wilson, a defensive back from Illinois.
Wilson signed a four-year deal. According to Aaron Wilson of scout.com, the contract totals $4.2 million, with a $1.5 million sigining bonus.
Tavon Wilson is the first of the Pats' seven draft picks to come to terms.
Along with the Wilson signing, New England also announced that it has released QB Mike Hartline. Hartline, undrafted out of Kentucky in 2011, took part in the team's rookie mini-camp last weekend.
