New England Patriots Sign Offensive Tackle

The New England Patriots have extended a restricted free agent tender to offensive tackle Yodny Cajuste at the original-round level, which he has now signed, according to a report by ESPN's Field Yates.

Cajuste, who missed his first two seasons due to injuries, has become a solid depth option for the Patriots, starting in three games and appearing in 10 overall in 2022 despite missing seven games due to thumb and calf injuries.

As a restricted free agent, Cajuste is now officially tied to the team for the upcoming 2023 season and is expected to provide backup support.

He will earn $2.7 million for the season under the terms of the tender. Photo Credit: Eric Canha-USA TODAY Sports
