The Patriots made another move, signing former Raven defensive linemen Lawrence Guy to a four year deal worth up to $20M, according to Ian Rapoport. Guy joins a defensive line which includes some good rotational players. Guy can play both the inside and the outside. He is tremendous in the run game, which is already a strength of the Patriots.
Guy recorded five and a half sacks over the past two season. Guy stands at 6’4″ 300lb.
This does not hamper the Patriots’ chances to sign both Hightower and Butler to long term deals. According to @patscap on Twitter they can sign the both of them to the same deals as Stephon Gillmore and still have over $20M in cap room left. That is before restructuring Danny Amendola’s contract.
