The Patriots are signing defensive tackle Davon Godchaux to a two-year deal worth up to $16 million. The pact includes $9 million guaranteed.
Bill Belichick isn't slowing down after inking a four-year deal with Jonnu Smith. He opens his wallet once again for Godchaux, who impressed over four years in Miami. He missed most of 2020 due to an injury, but between 2018 and 2019, he started 32 games, making 123 tackles and three sacks. The former fifth-round pick out of LSU evidently did enough to earn a multi-year deal that will make him a starter in New England's strong offense.
Davon Godchaux was diagnosed with torn biceps and is seeking a second opinion. If the original prognosis holds up then Godchaux will miss the remainder of the 2020 season.
Godchaux's absence should be something that the Dolphins can recover from. Godchaux has 14 solo tackles and five assisted tackles through 2020 so far.
