The Patriots have come to an agreement with fifth-round pick George Bussey. According to a league source, Bussey, an offensive lineman from Louisville, has agreed to a four-year deal.
The 6-foot, 2-inch, 306-pound Bussey is the ninth of the Patriots' 12 draft picks to reach a deal with the team. The only remaining picks who haven't signed or come to terms are the team's top overall pick, safety Patrick Chung, third-round pick linebacker Tyrone McKenzie and sixth-round pick long-snapper Jake Ingram.
Bussey was a walk-on at Louisville, foregoing a full-scholarship to culinary school. He played both guard and tackle for Louisville in his four seasons there and was twice an All-Big East first-team selection, including last season.
