Report: Patriots Signed Another Member of The 2021 NFL Draft Class

The New England Patriots are making a lot of changes at the moment. The team lost some of the players on the 2020 roster and they are bringing in new talent. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick selected a lot of players in the 2021 NFL draft. He got some really good prospects and the Patriots signed one of the players they got in the 2021 draft.

Belichick selected outside linebacker Ronnie Perkins No.96 overall in the third round of the NFL draft. He shared a photo to his social media and thanked the organization for the great opportunity.

“Thanks to the @Patriots for believing in me. Not it’s time to work my (expletive) off for the 2nd one,” Perkins tweeted Tuesday along with a photo wearing team gear with pen in hand.

Several reports confirmed the signing. According to sources, Perkins has a four-year deal with the team.

Patriots cap expert Miguel Benzan shared his insight on Perkins’ salary for the upcoming season. He wrote that the player will get $660,00o in 2021 and $877,538 in 2022.

Second-round defensive tackle Christian Barmore has yet to ink his deal with the Patriots.

Head coach Belichick has nothing but words of praise for the Oklahoma product. He spoke highly of Barmore in April. The 21-year-old practiced with outside linebackers during the Patriots’ mandatory minicamp in June.

Patriots rookies will report to Gillette Stadium on Tuesday. Veterans arrive July 27.

Belichick has so much to do right now. He will be working with a completely different mix of players. Some of them will have a hard time adjusting to the system. Patriots do things differently and not everyone fits Belichick’s criteria. Let’s see what happens in training camp. A lot of players will part ways with the team in the final roster trimming.

N’Keal Harry’s situation is pretty complicated and he has requested a trade. Chase Winovich has made people talk and we all know that his future is hanging in the air. Maybe Belichick has already found a replacement for these two.
