Drake Maye puts pen to paper on «$36.6 million starter with Patriots … including $23.5 million bonus» for No. 3 overall pick


  • Drake Maye was drafted by the Patriots after playing for UNC in college
  • He is expected to make his professional debut with the Bengals in September

The Patriots have reported rookie quarterback Drake Maye to a $36.63 million, fully guaranteed rookie deal — including a $23.46 million signing bonus.

Maye, the No. 3 pick in this year’s NFL draft, joins the team on a four-year contract with an option for a fifth year.

The terms were reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Maye takes over in New England three years after the team selected Mac Jones 15th overall, with the former University of Alabama pass rusher stepping down after a strong rookie season that saw him make the Pro Bowl and lead the team to the postseason.

Jones was traded to the Jaguars in March.

Maye will be hoping to get the Patriots back on track after going just 4-13 last season.

New England also finished next to last in points per game with just 13.9 points per game.

The team parted ways with legendary head coach Bill Belichick after the season and promoted inside linebackers coach Jerod Mayo to the top job.

The Patriots open their season at the Bengals on September 8th.
