Patriots defensive tackle Davon Godchaux was headed into the final year of his contract scheduled to make $6.5 million in base salary this season. He signed an extension Wednesday.

Drew Rosenhaus and Ryan Matha negotiated a two-year, $20.8 million extension with New England that includes $17.85 million fully guaranteed at signing.

Godchaux left Miami after four seasons to sign a two-year deal with the Patriots in the 2021 offseason.

He played 639 defensive snaps — 59 percent of the team’s defensive snaps — and 69 on special teams last season. Godchaux totaled 65 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and five quarterback hits.

Godchaux, Christian Barmore and Lawrence Guy give the Patriots a formidable group in the interior of the defensive line.

  1. For that kind of money he will be asked to stop the Bills at least once. 7 for 7.

  2. Current status of Patriot’s Defense

    Interior line, very good
    Edge rushers, just ok
    Linebackers, all new
    Corners, not too good
    Safeties, great

  3. I never thought he was that good. I guess that’s why they pay Bill to walk in the Stadium and I have to pay to walk in the Stadium.

  4. Seems like a lot of money for a team already up against the Cap?! But BB knows best.

  5. For BB to offer an extension is telling. He wasnt the problem clearly in the run game. BB knows D lineman as he has drafted and/or coached multiple HOF D lineman. Wish they saved more Cap Space however

  6. Godchaux’s cap number will actually remain the same this year. The Pats are flush with cap room next year. Still, while I understand the Pats staff has forgotten more about FB than I’ll ever know, I don’t get it. They couldn’t stop the run last year. This year they’re rolling the dice on about 8 unproven LBs. I guess we’ll see.

    The division runs through Foxborough


    Factually correct, once a year, each team. But the division is owned by the Bills.

    Come on buddy.

    “According to ESPN’s Mike Reiss, however, Godchaux’s new deal actually helped the Patriots free up about $1.5 million in cap space. Godchaux’s 2022 cap number drops from $10.25 million to $8.75 million, as New England converted much of his 2022 salary to a signing bonus.”
