One of the New England Patriots’ longest-tenured players is not with the team at mandatory minicamp.

ESPN’s Mike Reiss reported defensive tackle Lawrence Guy “did not report to the Patriots” for the start of minicamp, which began Monday outside Gillette Stadium.

Guy’s absence was “believed to be contract-related,” per Reiss’ source.

Guy has been with the Patriots since 2017. He’s appeared in 93 games for New England with 91 starts and is one of the few remaining members from the 2018 team that won Super Bowl LIII. Guy also served as a team captain in 2020.
