Pats sign WR Kendrick Bourne

Productive but slow. I have to study him and figure out how he does it. Really slow.
4.68 is 5th percentile. Laughable.

Slot/inside guy who can also play outside. Quick for his size. Great hands. 121 Passer Rating when targeted - 9th best in the league. Wow. Ok.
 

Another example of why contracts matter.

3 yrs/$22M is a far cry from 3 yrs/$15M with only $5.25M in guaranteed money and $7M in roster bonuses plus the 2023 escalator of $4M.
If this kid wants his money he'll have to earn it one game at a time.

I think Bourne is a little better than we're giving him credit for.
His stats are comparable to Jules' stats in many ways.
He's getting called out for his drops but he has a similar drop% in years 2, 3 & 4 as JE11, for example, in years 8, 9 and 10.
His Passer Rating when targeted is actually a little better than Jules' for those same 3 years.
We can't forget that he's played only 4 years to Jules' 11 years.
Jules has been a pretty damn good player for us. This guy is still young and learning.
