    The Patriots got their first rookie under contract when Markell Carter under contract earlier this afternoon, and it appears they've also reached a deal with another one....

    TE Lee Smith signed

    ProFootballWeekly.com - Patriots sign draft picks Carter, Smith

    Smith (pick 159) got a signing bonus of $171,480 [sic].
    Markell Carter (pick 194) got a signing bonus of $94,000.

    By comparison, in 2010:

    Zoltan (pick 150) got a signing bonus of $187,500.
    Ted Larsen (pick 205) got a signing bonus of $80,300.

    In other words, not vast changes from what we saw in 2010.

    OTOH, remember that their base salary is $375K for 2011, as opposed to $320K last year.

    The rookie wage scale in regards to those #'s provided by ct show that the Rookie Wage Scale is still wrong.


    that # stuff is close.



    Bye Lee we hardly knew ya:( [edit] unless u let us break a bone of yours and put u on the IR/PUP w/ a legit reason


    fyi the 1st 2 rounds is where $$$ is and that is where teams make the big savings

    The best 53 make the roster. That could as easily be 4 TEs/4 RBs as 3 TEs/5 RBs, especially if they go with the four young'uns.

    I bet SolderKing is happy about the Pats locking up his 'young balls'....;)
