Damn, that's some coin for a TE. Where does that rank vs. other TEs? Hope Chico gets paid as well....

Awesome

Now we have 2-3 years to figure out what to do with Hernandez

Welker might be pissed though

Figured that would be the case, it'll be interesting to see what $$$ A. Hernandez gets (whether it's offered by New England or elsewhere).

If the Pats opt to cut him before an option bonus before his second to last year, it's basically a 6 year/$40m deal. His salary also only barely increases the first two seasons (before the expected salary cap jump from the new network deals). That's not a bad deal for the Pats.

Notice no one is really talking guaranteed money.

Only like $10 million is guaranteed. No way Gronk sees all that money as long as the Hoodie runs the Pats.
