The Patriots and RB Rex Burkhead have agreed to a reworked final year of his contract to help provide the team with salary-cap relief, sources tell ESPN's Field Yates. Burkhead gets $550k to sign and drops his base salary from $2.5 million to $1.05 million, with $400k available in roster bonuses (down from $500k). The move creates $981,250 in cap space. The Patriots have been one of the tightest teams to the cap, with about $260k of space. Also, this further solidifies Burkhead's roster spot.
