Fletcher will compete for one of the vacant starting CB positions that became available when the Patriots allowed CBs Brandon Browner and Darrelle Revis in free agency.
A six year NFL veteran, Fletcher spent four seasons with the St. Louis Rams and two seasons with the Eagles. He became a full-time starter in 2010 and recorded 4 INTs along with 71 tackles. In 2013 he joined the Eagles and set a career high in tackles with 73 as the Eagles won their first NFC East title since 2010.
In 2014 Fletcher recorded his first ever TD on a pick-six against the Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football. But the team decided to part ways with Fletcher at the end of the season after missing the playoffs.
