The New England Patriots got a deal when they signed former Nebraska running back Rex Burkhead this offseason.
According to an article for ESPN Insiders, Burkhead's one year, $3.15 million deal with New England is among the best values in free agency this year.
"The Patriots landed a versatile young back who projects as an ideal system fit and should contribute on special teams," ESPN senior writer Mike Sando wrote. "One agent without ties to any of the running backs in the market this offseason listed the Burkhead signing as the steal of free agency."
Former Chadron State star Danny Woodhead, who signed a three-year, $8.8 million deal with the Baltimore Ravens, is among the worst values listed.
"Woodhead can only be a difference-maker when he plays," Sando wrote. "Woodhead is 32-years old and has missed 27 of his past 48 games. How badly does Baltimore need another injury-prone player?"
