Georgia fans shouldn’t be surprised by this, but the New England Patriots seem to be very fond of former Georgia great David Andrews.
As first reported Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the former Georgia center agreed to a 3-year contract extension with the New England Patriots through 2020. With incentives, Andrews can make up to $11 million on the contract.
Andrews was a 3-year started and captain at Georgia but went undrafted in the 2015 NFL Draft. He ended up signing with the Patriots and then started the first 10 games of the 2015 season. He then started every game at center for the Patriots this past season, when the team went on to win the Super Bowl against the Atlanta Falcons.
In addition to earning early playing time, he’s also gotten the respect of Tom Brady, arguably the best quarterback in the history of the NFL.
When Andrews first signed with Patriots, he was given a $15,000 signing bonus. It’s safe to his new contract, and raise, is much deserved.
