Patriots sign third-round choice Ronnie Perkins

Nobody seems to know when Tom Brady tore his MCL last season and how long he played with it, but Mike Florio says it's clear the NFL needs to make the injury reporting process more transparent.

The Patriots’ rookies reported to camp Tuesday. The team began the day with two of eight draft choices unsigned.

Third-round choice Ronnie Perkins posted a photo on social media of him signing his four-year rookie deal.

Thanks to the @Patriots for believing in me. Now it’s time to work my ass off for the 2nd one,” Perkins wrote.

That leaves second-round choice Christian Barmore as the lone unsigned choice.

Perkins, an edge rusher, was a three-year starter at Oklahoma. He earned second-team All-Big 12 honors in 2019 and 2020 and finished his college career with 99 tackles, 16.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a deflection.
