Turner signs one-year contract
By Rich Cimini
WR Patrick Turner, set to become a restricted free agent on March 13, signed a one-year, $875,000 contract, a source confirmed.
Turner will earn $615,000 in base pay, plus a $250,000 signing bonus and a $10,000 workout bonus.
The 6-foot-5 Turner, originally a third-round pick of the Dolphins in 2009, caught eight passes for 96 yards and a touchdown last season. His touchdown came late in the final regular-season game after replacing Santonio Holmes, who was benched because he was jawing with teammates. He also contributed on special teams.
Turner was a teammate of Mark Sanchez at USC.
