Patriots bolster defensive line with Lawrence Guy

Getty Images

Former Ravens defensive end Lawrence Guy is heading to New England.

Guy has signed a four-year contract with the Patriots, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 26-year-old Guy arrived in Baltimore in the middle of the 2014 season and immediately became a contributor on the defensive line. Last year he played in all 16 games, starting 10 and playing 46 percent of the Ravens’ defensive snaps as well as 27 percent of the Ravens’ special teams snaps.

Bill Belichick apparently liked what he saw of Guy in Baltimore, and now he’ll play on a conference rival.

    this team is going for broke

  2. pastabelly says: Mar 11, 2017 3:08 PM

    $20 million? How many years?

  3. edelmanfanclub says: Mar 11, 2017 3:12 PM

    This is typical Belichick signing bolstering the front 7. The Gilmore and Cooks addition werent really but this is vintage Belichick. He loves his depth on the DL. Ealy Flowers Nink Brown Guy Branch. Not too shabby

    .
    Chris Long and Jabaal Sheard are out. Kony Ealy and Lawrence Guy are in. As Belichick always says ” we’ll get them in camp and see how it goes”.

    The Patriots are still a little short in the pass rush area.

    Going for broke???? They had like 80MM in cap room or

  6. daddeeo says: Mar 11, 2017 3:17 PM

    BB has decided to make this the year.

    Looks like more Purple Participation ribbons for the rest of the league.

  7. audio2sell says: Mar 11, 2017 3:17 PM

    Another great move by Bill

  8. becklesman says: Mar 11, 2017 3:18 PM

    Going for broke is right. Brady’s last year. Thats why they won’t trade Jimmy G and are loading up. I betcha.

    He’s not your buddy, guy!

    So what is BB worried about having to sign all these big name defensive FAs ( I understand Gilmore, having played for theBills, but the others?). It isn’t just a “rich get richer” thing–is BB finally, after all these years, worried about divisional competition (Bills just resigned Tyrod, a good QB, and I am sure BB knows Adam Gase is a good head coach as well, no PhilBUM or Sparano!) Surely, BB has a good reason and it ain’t just to keep these players away from Miami or Buffalo!

  11. terripet says: Mar 11, 2017 3:22 PM

    Patriots know Brady is done

  12. golforepar says: Mar 11, 2017 3:24 PM

    What is the Pats salary cap under the table?

  13. pastabelly says: Mar 11, 2017 3:31 PM

    This four years at $20 million. Seems a lot for him. Oh well, they replaced Sheard and Long with Ealy and Guy.

    It’s a shame that the NFL is trying to alter the competiveness of the league by stealing draft picks.

    • In 2014 Roger Goodell pledged more transparency.
    • In 2015 Roger Goodell said that “the integrity of the league was the most important thing”.
    • During the 2015 season the NFL collected PSI measurements to determine the effects that weather has on footballs during game conditions.
    • In 2016 the Patriots had their 1st round draft pick taken while the NFL was convincing everyone that the weather can’t lower the PSI in footballs.
    • Now the NFL plans on taking the Patriots best 2017 fourth round draft pick away…while sticking to the story that footballs don’t drop PSI when it’s cold.
    • It’s 2017 and the NFL still hasn’t issued a press release containing the PSI measurements that were collected during the 2015 season.
    • So much for the empty promises of transparency.
    • It’s now obvious that “the integrity of the league” is not important to Roger Goodell.

    to all the other teams in the NFL……….you only wish and prey you had a coach/GM like BB.
    There is not another person in the NFL that can hold BB’s jockstrap…. Nothing but great moves at low salaries…….all young guys that have established themselves… why gamble on a draft choice ??? guess what… N.E. still has over 35 million in cap salary…. keep going BILL>>>>

    What a joke.

    And how many times over the years have you sent the Patriots’ run was over? Sounding like a typical bitter and jealous hater.

    But that’s ok, keep saying it… some year you’ll be bound to be right.

    Brady is done when Brady says he’s done. Don’t second guess the humble one, if he gets pissed, he may turn around and pull a Super Bowl out of the fire. When will these guys learn, when will they ever learn? Probably never!

  21. natijim235 says: Mar 11, 2017 3:58 PM

    how come i never heard of this guy?

  22. igotgamenj says: Mar 11, 2017 4:09 PM

    Should we tell ’em?

    Since he’s the best QB in the league and in history, how many yards does that mean your QB gets.

    Aaron Rogers best QB? What a joke!

    Here comes rings 6 and 7

    Spoken like a guy who wishes he had an all time great QB

    The blitz for 6.

  27. sidepull says: Mar 11, 2017 4:39 PM

    Good pick up. Youll see. Flako will be getting a bit of pressure from this cat I am sure. So when you say Just a Guy, well there it is. Go get em Guy!

  28. eddiea25 says: Mar 11, 2017 4:42 PM

    Draft Day Jimmy G and Danny Ammendola go to Cleveland for numerous picks. BB then drafts a edge rusher and a QB.

  29. ibillwt says: Mar 11, 2017 5:18 PM

    Good. We want more Pats news and less about the other 31 teams. If they made the playoffs, OK a little bit, but don’t care about the irrelevants unless Belichick is skinning them again in a trade.

    We really enjoy how much your pathetic life has been ruined by Tom Brady. Its like a secondary sport to football.

    Do you live the rest of your life ignoring facts and science?
    – I don’t watch that News stuff because a witch tells me when its gonna rain! She’s in league with the devil!
    – I hope the sun god has a clear path for his chariot so it will be nice and sunny today!

    Career yards per pass:
    Brees 7.5
    Brady 7.5
    Montana 7.5
    Ryan 7.4
    Luck 7.2
    Eli 7.1
    Favre 7.1
    Flacco 6.9
    Bradford 6.6
    Carr 6.5

    Alternate Facts Atlanta had one hell of a Super Bowl parade this year? Were you there in your dreams?

    Eh…. hes just a guy.

  34. thecape15 says: Mar 11, 2017 6:31 PM

    The haters quieted down around our SB win, amid the talk of greatness.

    Now they are back, showing their true (stupid) colors.

    I for one appreciate honest football talk.

    But have at it if you must.

    I will continue to ignore you.

    Just another strong link I ever growing chain of indestructability…..
    Depth… Diversity…Desire…..what a great philosophy to use when constructing & maintaining a dynasty….
    I hope BB gets Butler & Hightower under long term contracts to go with all he has already done…..
    & IF HE DECIDES TO TRADE JIMMY, he gets picks # 12 & 33 this year as well as the Browns 2nd & 3rd round picks next year…. If not, I’d keep Jimmy as insurance & if they have to, I’d Franchise him next year as well….

    Some day people will figure out that every year is “the year” with Belichick and the Patriots.

    Crying “cheater” is the lazy loser’s way of deflecting from the poor performance of the team they root for. It’s sad, really.

  38. ikeclanton says: Mar 11, 2017 9:52 PM

    Belichick is going to make the dopes at the league office pay for years and years. You’d think that this one Super Bowl would settle all family business. It didn’t for him. His grudge is going to run for a looooong time.

    They picked a fight with the wrong guy.

    Not Hardly. Quite to the contrary one of the bigger knocks people put on the Pats is how they get too much of a free ride from having such easy division opponents.

    Well then by all means move up all your DB to within 2 yards of the line. If you really mean that then whats to worry?
