6 rings: Another comeback falls short as the Patriots fall to Miami 24-17
The Patriots' left tackle has a new contract.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Trent Brown agreed to a revised, improved contract with the team.
The new deal adds $2 million worth of incentives to his current contract, making this season worth up to $13 million total. The tackle will still become a free agent following the 2023 campaign.
Brown signed back with New England at the beginning of last season on a two-year, $13 million and was originally slated to play right tackle. Prior to the season, however, they switched him back over to the left side - the position he had played with them during the 2018 and the 2021 seasons.
Generally speaking, left tackles (the quarterback's blind side) tend to make more money than right tackles, so this new deal brings him up to par with his position. Brown missed last week for the Patriots with a concussion but should be ready to go against the Jets on Sunday if he clears protocol.
