It’s worth mentioning that Ebner suffered a season-ending knee injury during Week 12’s win over the Dolphins.
Ebner, 29, is a former sixth-round pick of the Patriots back in 2012. He played out the final year of his two-year, $2.4 million contract and made a base salary of $825,000 for the 2017 season.
Ebner was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent.
In 2017, Ebner appeared in nine games and recorded eight tackles for the Patriots.
