Details released on LaAdrian Waddle’s new deal with the Patriots

NFL: Super Bowl LII-Philadelphia Eagles vs New England Patriots Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

On Wednesday, the Boston Globe’s Ben Volin reported the details on the Patriots new one-year contract with swing tackle LaAdrian Waddle. The agreement is worth a base value of $1.5 million in 2018.

Later on Wednesday morning, ESPN’s Mike Reiss provided some additional details.

The breakdown:


Salary: $800,000

Signing bonus : $200,000

Per-game roster bonuses: $337,500 ($28,125 per game — considered “likely to be earned” for 12 games)

Workout bonus: $50,000

Incentives: $250,000 (unspecified)

2018 Cap Figure: $1,637,500

With Waddle’s 2018 cap figure reportedly filed at $1,637,500, we must assume from the information available that his unspecified incentives are being considered “likely to be earned”. In the 12 games in which he was active in 2017, Waddle started four of them, and played in just over 29% of the team’s offensive snaps.

Waddle will presumably compete for the starting left tackle position in training camp, and until the draft, is likely the front-runner, considering the reports of Tony Garcia’s weight loss.
