Demaryius Thomas Appears To Be Low-Risk, High-Reward Signing For Patriots

The NFL Network’s Albert Breer has tweeted out the parameters of Thomas’ one-year pact with the Patriots, and as expected, it’s mostly performance incentives for the 31-year-old receiver.

As ESPN’s Field Yates reported earlier Wednesday, Thomas will carry a cap hit of just under $3 million.

His base salary is lower than what the Patriots just gave Philip Dorsett this offseason, who he’ll be battling with on the depth chart for the No.

Given that Thomas, 31, suffered the second Achilles injury of his career in December, there’s no guarantee that he even makes New England’s 53-man roster out of camp.

It’s hard to put up decent numbers when guys like Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Case Keenum throwing you the football.

If Thomas doesn’t fit with the Patriots, or is slowed by his Achilles injury, the team can move on without too much of a cap hit lingering.
