Best Answer

Caesar Rodney was a Patriot because in 1996, Robert Kraft and Bill Parcells successfully signed him to a highly controversial free agent agreement. The Patriots beat the 49ers and the Jets for his services. The reason it was so controversial was because this was the first time ever that a signing bonus was ever awarded. Rodney was quoted as saying "I didn't even know they could do that, but that's why I'm a Patriot".

So the answer is because of signing bonuses.
