Patriots TD Christian Barmore agrees to 4-year extension, agent says

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The New England Patriots and defensive end Christian Barmore have reached an agreement on a four-year contract worth a maximum of $92 million, agent Nicole Lynn told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Barmore's contract includes $41.8 million in guaranteed money, a source told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

The 6-foot-5, 315-pound Barmore was selected in the second round of the 2021 draft (No. 38 overall) out of Alabama. He entered the final year of his contract in 2024 and was scheduled to earn a base salary of $1.82 million.

The four-year extension runs through the 2028 season.

Barmore has played in 44 NFL games (11 starts), totaling 133 tackles and 12.5 sacks.

The 2023 season was very productive for him, as he played in all 17 games and had career highs in tackles (64) and sacks (8.5). The pairing of Parmore and senior nose tackle Davon Godchaux in the center of the defense gives the Patriots a solid presence against the run with the ability to push the pocket and create pressure at times.

Elliott Wolf, the Patriots' director of scouting, who is in his first season with more responsibility than the tight end, has said his goal is to become a “draft and develop” team. The signing of Barmore continues a trend for the team this offseason.
