And You Thought Britton Colquitt Was Overpaid

The Patriots have reached a long-term agreement with kicker Stephen Gostowski. For those who thought the Pats were all about getting deals at great value, look at the numbers Adam Schefter has reported.

That’s $4.3M per year. For a kicker!

Somewhere, Douglas Lee weeps.

On a more serious note, I’m shocked the Pats did this. True, the details of the contract are what matters. But knowing it’s possible to find kickers at more reasonable prices, and knowing that the Pats don’t like overpaying for players, it’s surprising the Pats would make this move.
