While it certainly appears at this point that Jeff Demps is going to be a Patriot today, his agent is denying the deal is done.
Demps’ track agent, Nohemy Baltodano tweeted that “Those reports are untrue!” (And the exclamation mark makes it more believable.)
Meanwhile, Mark Cook of PewterReport.com writes that a decision is expected this afternoon, and that it’s between the Buccaneers and the Patriots, indicating a level of involvement for Tampa Bay few others share.
Tampa television station Fox 13’s Kevin O’Donnell was first to report he had agreed with the Patriots after a visit Thursday.
Best we can tell, no one has reported he’s signed, although ESPN’s John Clayton, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe and Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald are all citing various sources saying he’s agreed, with Rapoport quoting Baltodano.
