Here are the reported details of Trent Brown's new contract with Patriots


The New England Patriots lost two starters early in NFL free agency when left guard Ted Karras signed with the Cincinnati Bengals and right guard Shaq Mason was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

They could have lost a third starter but managed to re-sign right tackle Trent Brown to a two-year contract on Monday.

The financial details of Brown's new contract were revealed Tuesday. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported the deal is worth up to $22 million, which includes a base value of $13 million and $4 million in guaranteed money. There are also playtime incentives.

Good deal for the Patriots? Here's what our insider Phil Perry wrote on Twitter:

Brown has been a productive tackle for the Patriots when healthy. Staying on the field was a bit of a challenge for him last season, though. He played in just nine of the Patriots' 17 regular season games.

Even with Brown back in the fold, it would be wise for the Patriots to add another player or two to their offensive line before training camp begins in the summer. Head coach Bill Belichick and his staff have seven picks in the 2022 NFL Draft, and that's an area where the Pats can find good, low-cost talent for the offensive line.
