Report: Shiancoe signs one-year deal with Patriots

It was reported earlier in the day that Visanthe Shiancoe was deciding between the Patriots and the Eagles, and that decision could come Tuesday night

It came, and Yahoo! Sports' Jason Cole has the decision:

Visanthe Shiancoe has signed a 1-year deal with New England Jason Cole (@JasonColeYahoo) July 24, 2012
PFT has the details of the contract.
Shiancoe gets 1.2m on one year deal from Pats.400k guaranteed.800k incentives. ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) July 24, 2012
It's obviously too soon to say what Shiancoe's role could be on the Patriots. With Daniel Fells starting training camp on the ActivePUP list, Shiancoe is added insurance at the least, and a very capable veteran presence at the TE position at the most.
