Per a league source, TE Rob Gronkowski has signed a six-year contract extension. The deal carries, we’re told, $54 million in new money.
Given that he already was under contract for two more years, the deal binds Gronkowski to the team for eight seasons, putting him under contract through 2019.
The contract includes an $8 million signing bonus, a fully-guaranteed 2012 base salary of $540,000, a fully-guaranteed 2013 base salary of $630,000, and a fully-guaranteed base salary of $3.75 million in 2014.
This is great news for Gronkowski and his keeper/dynasty owners.
