The Patriots reached agreement on a three-year deal with 27-year-old receiver Brandon LaFell Saturday.
 
The 6-2, 208-pound LaFell caught 49 passes for 627 yards and five touchdowns in Carolina last season. He had a solid game against the Patriots, catching a season-high seven passes in the Panthers win over the Patriots.
 
He had 44 catches for 677 yards and four scores in 2012.
 
Drafted in the third round out of LSU in 2010, LaFell can work inside in the slot or outside the numbers. He will be a complement to Julian Edelman – re-signed on Saturday – and Danny Amendola.
 
Aaron Dobson is coming off foot surgery but will also be in the mix as will Kenbrell Thompkins.
 
Troubled but talented Kenny Britt, last of the Tennessee Titans, also reportedly had a visit lined up with New England this week.
