2nd round draft pick Darius Butler has signed a four year contract with the Patriots, his agent Drew Rosenhaus reports on his Twitter page.
The deal will be for four years, and is particularly interesting because it includes no signing bonus. Instead, it includes a roster bonus of $440,000 and an option bonus for next year greater than $1.6 million. ProFootballTalk.com has all of the details.
Butler, the 41st overall pick in this year’s draft, is the second Patriots draft pick to sign with the Patriots. The first was offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger.
