On June 23, 2022, Tyquan Thornton signed a contract with the New England Patriots.
Before New England can sign any of their three unreported rookies, they’ll need to clear some salary cap room.
They need about $1.88 million in salary space to sign Thornton, Strange (whose contract has also not been made official), and fourth-round quarterback Bailey Zappe.
However, at the present time, the team’s budget is only $142,280 below the NFL’s spending cap.
Thornton’s deal would eat up $457,520 even after the Top-51 rule, which was in effect during the offseason, was applied. In contrast, the price tags for Strange are $1.26 million and $161,768 for Zappe.
At age 21, Thornton was the Patriots’ 50th-overall pick in this year’s draft. The 10th wide receiver taken, the Baylor talent brings fascinating speed to the New England attack.
He was the fastest offensive player at the Scouting Combine and will provide the Patriots with a legitimate field-stretcher.
