The New England Patriots continued their offseason retooling, signing defensive lineman Lawrence Guy to a four-year contract on Saturday, according to published reports.
Guy, who is five days shy of his 27th birthday, signed a deal worth a reported $20 million, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
The 6-foot-4, 305-pound Guy spent the majority of the last three seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, appearing in all 16 games in each of the past two years and starting a career-high 10 in 2016.
Guy had 28 tackles and one sack last season after registering career highs in both categories in 2015 with 46 and 4.5, respectively.
Defending Super Bowl champion New England has made a flurry of moves in the early signing period, including the acquisition of wide receiver Brandin Cooks and signing of free-agent cornerback Stephon Gilmore.
