The Patriots made at least one notable free-agent signing on Monday with the addition of running back Antonio Gibson, and now, we have the contract details.

For those interested in financials and salary cap machinations, it’s worth knowing the complete numbers across Gibson’s three-year deal with New England. ESPN’s Mike Reiss reported the full details on Monday, just a few hours after news dropped of the Gibson signing.

Gibson will have a slightly different base salary, while his roster bonuses and incentives will be the same across the life of the contract. His deal also includes a $3 million signing bonus. Here are the full numbers, year-by-year:

2024

$1.125 million base salary (guaranteed)
$510,000 per-game roster bonuses ($30,000/game)
$115,000 workout bonus
$2 million maximum incentives

2025

$2.35 million base salary ($1.175 million guaranteed)
$510,000 per-game roster bonuses ($30,000/game)
$140,000 workout bonus
$2 million maximum incentives

2026

$2.85 million base salary
$510,000 per-game roster bonuses ($30,000/game)
$140,000 workout bonus
$2 million maximum incentives

The guaranteed money adds up to $5.3 million for Gibson, while the AAV of the base value is $3.75 million. So, it’s reasonable to believe that the Patriots would have no issues moving on from this contract if they wanted to in a future season.

  • WR Jalen Reagor

    Reagor is back with the Patriots after emerging as a viable returner, and even as a big-play receiver, down the stretch of the 2023 season. However, he could only get a one-year deal for $2.92 million, according to Mike Reiss. So, he’ll have to prove himself all over again.

    Contract Details

    $1.125 million base salary ($300,000 guaranteed)
    $142,000 signing bonus
    $25,000 workout bonus

    Reagor will have to compete for offensive snaps on the perimeter with Kendrick Bourne and possible draft picks at wide receiver, but he should have a chance to be a regular in the return game.

  • LB Sione Takitaki

    The Patriots moved relatively quickly to find a replacement at off-ball linebacker for Mack Wilson Sr., bringing in former Browns LB Sione Takitaki¬†on a two-year deal. Here are the full details of Takitaki’s contract

    2024

    $1.125 million base salary
    $510,000 per-game roster bonuses $30,000/game)
    $150,000 workout bonus
    $1.8 million maximum incentives

    2025

    $2.2 million base salary
    $510,000 per-game roster bonuses $30,000/game)
    $150,000 workout bonus
    $1.8 million maximum incentives

    The deal also includes a $2 million signing bonus. Takitaki joins the Patriots as a familiar face to Eliot Wolf, who was the Browns’ assistant GM when the linebacker was drafted in 2019.

    The full contract details are not yet reported for quarterback Jacoby Brissett. But Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network had the basic numbers: it’s one year for $8 million and a maximum value of $12 million with incentives for the former Browns quarterback, who is now in his second stint with the Patriots.

    As of this writing, we have yet to see the fully broken-down contract for Patriots cornerstone offensive lineman Michael Onwenu. But we do know, thanks to Ian Rapoport, that it’s a three-year deal worth up to $57 million with $38 million guaranteed. Onwenu also got a $22.5 million signing bonus, as the Pats signified their commitment to a homegrown stud on the O-line.
