Patriots’ First-Round Pick Nate Solder Finally Agrees to Deal

The Patriots had all of their draft picks signed except one: first-round pick Nate Solder. Earlier this afternoon, the Colorado offensive tackle and the Patriots agreed to a contract. The hang-up on getting the deal done were the amount of guaranteed years, as the new CBA says it is essentially a four-year deal. NFL analyst Jason LaCanfora (@JasonLaCanfora) tweeted that the terms of the deal are three years fully guaranteed, with the fourth year bringing half of the base salary guaranteed and the other half coming in a March roster bonus.

Solder should be at practice today (begins at 4:30 p.m.) and will wear #77. He will be learning to protect Tom Brady’s blindside from 10-year veteran Matt Light, who re-signed with the team for two years.
