ESPN's Field Yates reports the Patriots restructured Rex Burkhead's contract.
Burkhead was a likely cap casualty until this transaction, which drops his base salary from $2.5 million to $1.05 million and includes a $550,000 signing bonus in 2020, the final year of his deal. This move also creates $981,250 in cap space for the Patriots, which had roughly $260,000 in space prior to reworking Burkhead's contract. Much like last year, the 30-year-old is expected to play behind Sony Michel, James White, and Damien Harris barring an injury atop the depth chart. Jul 07 9:49 am (EST)
- Burkhead carried six times for 48 yards and hauled in his only target for six yards in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Dolphins.
- Burkhead ran for 20 yards and a touchdown on five carries while losing one fumble, and he corralled all four of his targets for 77 receiving yards during Saturday's 24-17 win against Buffalo.
- Burkhead logged 20 of a possible 65 snaps on offense in Sunday's 34-13 win over the Bengals, en route to carrying six times for 53 yards, including a 33-yard TD in the fourth quarter of the contest. All Rex Burkhead News
