Patriots' Demaryius Thomas: Contract terms clarified
Per the report, the veteran wideout landed a $150,000 signing bonus from the Patriots and is in line to earn a $150,000 bonus for reporting to the team to go with a $1.2 million base salary. Additionally, Thomas can collect $1.4 million in per-game roster bonuses, as well as another $750,000 for 60 catches, $750,000 for 800 receiving yards, $750,000 for 1,000 yards and $750,000 for 1,200 yards. Essentially, the 31-year-old is betting on himself and in the process New England is able to take a low-risk flier on an accomplished pass catcher who is bouncing back from the second Achilles injury of his career, which occurred last December. After suffering a torn right Achilles' tendon back in February 2011, Thomas went on to play 11 games during the 2011 campaign and then rounded into Pro Bowl-form in 2012. This time around, Thomas is recovering from a left Achilles' tear, an injury that has the potential to sap pro athletes of speed and explosiveness, especially in the back half of their careers.
