When the Patriots took the practice field earlier this month for the first of three mandatory minicamp sessions, Lawrence Guy was among those not in attendance.
Guy’s absence was contract-related. Guy is signed through 2024 and has a base salary of $2 million this year and next.
That amongst other things could very well end his tenure with his team.
Chad Graff of The Athletic doesn’t rate the 33-year-old very high to get paid by the Patriots. He concluded that Guy would make the final depth chart, he did caution the 12-year pro “could be a surprise cut considering the Pats can save $3.3 million against the cap while only incurring $250,000 in dead money.”
He also pointed out “Belichick previously hasn’t been keen on handing out new deals to players entering their mid-30s.”
Belichick was asked about Guy last week, but he did not want to get into what was going on with his contract situation.
Guy has spent the last six seasons in New England and he’s started 91 of the 93 regular season games he’s played for the team.
The 33-year-old is entering his third season on a four-year contract he signed with New England in 2021. He played in 14 games last season, recording 46 total tackles with two sacks and five quarterback hits.
