PATRIOTS WR WES WELKER SIGNS FRANCHISE TENDER; PATRIOTS ALSO SIGN SIXTH-ROUND DRAFT CHOICE DB NATE EBNER

Wes Welker signs his franchise tender with the New England Patriots but they also sign sixth-round draft choice DB Nate Ebner. If you didn't know who Ebner was during draft day you're not alone. So after watching rookie mini camp I decided to "Google" Nate Ebner. He was a world-class Rugby player, who originally joined Ohio State as a walk-on in 2009. Last season, he played in all 12 games and was the teams outstanding special teams player. With that I decided to look even deeper and found out that Ebner's Dad, another outstanding rugby player, was killed in a robbery gone wrong. His father always told Nate growing up to "Finish Strong" words Ebner and the Ohio State football team later wore on their wristbands. I'm curious to see how the Patriots use Nate Ebner but his Ruby highlights are "2 legit to quit." Lets just hope he doesn't carry a football ruby style. #breadbasket
