The New England Patriots had half of its 2024 draft class locked into their rookie contracts heading into this week.

Drake Maye, the biggest name of the rookie bunch after being selected with the No. 3 overall pick, became the fifth member of that group to officially sign his contract, the Patriots announced Tuesday.

While the Patriots didn’t not reveal the terms of Maye’s deal, which typically is slotted, there were plenty of NFL insiders who did. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Maye received a fully guaranteed four-year deal with a customary fifth-year team option worth $36.63 million, and it includes a $23.46 million signing bonus.

The Boston Globe’s Ben Volin broke down Maye’s contract even further into his yearly salaries along with roster bonuses and cap hits. Here are all those numbers from Volin:
