Leigh Bodden's agent is telling everybody "Don't believe the type."
Bodden has not re-signed with the New England Patriots.
"Reports of Leigh Bodden re-signing with the Patriots are not true and premature at best," Bodden's agent, Alvin Keels, tweeted Monday night. "Leigh is still evaluating his options."
But multiple outlets report Bodden and the Patriots have agreed in principle on a new contract that will keep him in Foxborough after an effective season as the club's right cornerback.
Bodden made like Ryan Clark, flirting with another team before returning home. Bodden visited the Houston Texans on Monday. Clark spent the day with the Miami Dolphins but re-signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
In other Patriots news:
Four-time Pro Bowl tight end Alge Crumpler and defensive end Marques Murrell visited Gillette Stadium on Monday. Crumpler, a star when he played for the Atlanta Falcons, caught just 27 passes for 222 yards and one touchdown with the Tennessee Titans last year. Murrell played in 10 games with zero starts for the New York Jets.
