Patriots Christian Barmore Lands Big Contract Extension

The New England Patriots made their picks in the 2024 NFL Draft and then added a great number of undrafted free agents. Newly signed players will boost the defense and take part in the bigger picture. The Patriots also plan to change the offense and they have already made some moves. Christian Barmore earned a great contract extension and this long-term deal will motivate him to perform at a high level in the 2024 NFL season.

Barmore and the Patrits agreed to a four-year deal worth $92 million with $41.8 million guaranteed. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler and Adam Schefter were among the first to confirm the extension. It’s interesting to note that signing Barmore to a new contract was a priority for the team. Fowler reported that the Patriots have been negotiating Barmore’s extension for quite some time, meaning his deal was sealed long before he signed it.

Barmore worked hard to get a massive contract extension

The Patriots got Barmore in the 2021 NFL Draft as the 38th overall selection. He didn’t play great football in his rookie campaign with the Patriots and saw action in just 10 games in his sophomore season. Barmore learned his lesson and did his homework, and became one of the better interior defensive linemen in the league last season. NFL analysts praised his improvement and are excited to see more from him in 2024. Barmore’s new deal with the Patriots is a clear sign that they wanted him on the new roster. Head coach Jerod Mayo replaced many players on the roster, but did decide to keep Barmore around.

Barmore is not the only player to re-sign with the Patriots. Josh Uche, Mike Onwenu, Anfernee Jennings, and Kyle Dugger got their deals early in the offseason. Hunter Henry got an extension, too, and so did Kendrick Bourne. A handful of players got a second deal with the Patriots and expectations are high right now. They will join forces with a bunch of new players and the new-look Patriots team could make a difference in 2024.
