Pats ink sixth-rounder

As the Patriots’ wait for a ruling from the league as to whether the contract with second-round pick Darius Butler will be approved (which arguably is holding up negotiations with their three other second-round picks), they’ve struck a deal with a lower-round selection.

According to Mike Reiss of the Boston Globe, defensive lineman Myron Pryor has agreed to terms.

Pryor was a sixth-round pick in April.  He’s the third of 12 draft picks to agree to terms.

UPDATE:  Aaron Wilson of PFT reports that it’s a four-year deal, including a $79,000 signing bonus and the minimum base salaries, along with a potential escalator in year four.  The total base value is $1.829 million.
