Patriots Signing Patrick Chung To An Extension



According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the New England Patriots are signing safety Patrick Chung to a short-term extension.

Chung has fared well in his second stint in New England and will now be around through the 2019 season. Since coming back to New England he has been used as a safety instead of being a cornerback which he struggled as earlier in his career.

With Chung being 30-years-old he is still in his prime and having him locked up is a smart move for the Patriots.

Terms Of Patriots Deal With RB Jeremy Hill Revealed



Well, it looks like the Patriots got an absolute bargain when they signed free agent running back Jeremy Hill.

According to NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero, the deal is for one year worth $1.5 million but here is the real kicker. Other than a $150,000 signing bonus, there are no guarantees in his contract, meaning he will have to earn every penny.

As stated when the deal was reported this is a classic buy-low type of move for the Patriots. Low-risk, high reward.

Hill will be joined in the Patriots backfield with James White, Rex Burkhead, Brandon Bolden, Mike Gillislee, and James Develin.

It is unclear what the team’s intentions are with Mike Gillislee though. The thinking is that with Hill now on the roster that Gillslee might be expendable. Gillslee is on the second year of a two-year deal with the Patriots with the team and has a $2.1 million cap hit for the 2018 season.

Of course, the Patriots could elect to carry all of these backs with the realistic depth chart at running back looking like this with Bolden and Develin not actually going to see legitimate touches.

Brandon Bolden

James Develin

As you can clearly see at this moment in time it isn’t out of the question that Hill would be slotted in the third spot ahead of Gillislee. But of course much can change and with the Patriots still making moves, there is a chance something happens to this running back core before training camp opens this summer.

Update: Per Ben Voilen of the Boston Globe there is some more detail on Hill’s contract. 

They money on the deal is correct, $1.5 million with $150k guaranteed as a signing bonus. He will have a $1 million base salary, $50k workout bonus, and a $300k in per-game roster bonuses which breaks down to $18,750 per game that he is active. Overall his salary cap number is $1.33 million.

According to @PatsCap on Twitter, the current Patriots projected cap space is $12,233,238 million. But that number does not include the signings of Clayborn or Tobin, and it does not include the Chung extension.

Patriots Trade For Cordarrelle Patterson



The Patriots have traded for a wideout.

According to Pardon My Take and other media outlets the New England Patriots have traded for Oakland Raiders wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson.

It appears that New England is no longer in need of a wide receiver with Danny Amendola gone Patterson should slot right in for the Patriots who also expect to see increased roles out of Brandin Cooks, Phillip Dorsett, and the return of Malcolm Mitchell.

According to Ian Rapport of the NFL Network, the deal was an absolute steal for New England with the cost of Patterson only being a 5th round pick swap and a 6th rounder.

This is an easy buy-low move for the Patriots with Patterson having the ability to return kicks and has the ability to make plays.

Patterson is in his second year of a two-year deal.
