Patriots RB Rex Burkhead has agreed to rework the final year of his contract that drops his base salary from $2.5M to $1.05M in a cap saving move by New England. (Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Burkhead will earn $550K as a signing bonus instead with $400K available in roster bonuses. The reworking of his contract creates almost an additional $1M in cap space for a team that was tight against the cap to begin with. Burkhead will compete for touches amongst a crowded group of RBs in New England that includes Sony Michel, James White, Damien Harris, and Brandon Bolden. He won’t have much fantasy value heading into the final year of his contract unless other guys get hurt.
