Patriots DT Christian Barmore agrees to four-year extension, agent says


FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Patriots and defensive tackle Christian Barmore have agreed to a four-year deal with a maximum value of $92 million, agent Nicole Lynn told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

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

The 6-foot-1, 315-pound Barmore was selected in the second round of the 2021 draft out of Alabama (No. 38 overall). He was entering the final year of his contract in 2024 and was set 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 his most productive, as he totaled career highs in tackles (64) and sacks (8.5) and played in all 17 games. The combination of Barmore and veteran nose tackle Davon Godchaux in the heart of the defense gave the Patriots a solid presence against the run with the ability to also push the pocket and generate pressure at times.

Patriots director of scouting Eliot Wolf, who is in his first season with increased responsibility including end personnel, has said his goal is to become a “draft and development” team. The deal with Barmore continues a trend for the team this offseason.

The Patriots previously agreed to new deals with 2020 draft picks Kyle Dugger, Mike Onwenu, Josh Uche and Anfernee Jennings.
