On Tuesday afternoon, the Patriots and quarterback Mac Jones officially agreed to terms for Jones’ rookie contract. The signing was made public via the league’s transaction wire.
Jones’ deal is worth up to $15.6 million, with a $9 million signing bonus. There are four concrete years, with a fifth-year team option that is standard for all first-round picks.
With Jones’ contract out of the way, the Patriots have just two unsigned draft picks remaining in Christian Barmore and Ronnie Perkins. Their other five draft picks all signed in mid-May.
Three of the five quarterbacks taken in the first round have now signed, with Jones joining Trevor Lawrence of the Jaguars and Justin Fields of the Bears. Zach Wilson (Jets) and Trey Lance (49ers), who went second and third overall respectively, remain unsigned.
