Agent: TE Jonnu Smith reaches 4-year, $50M deal with Patriots
Former Tennessee Titans tight end Jonnu Smith agreed to a four-year, $50 million contract that includes $31.25 million fully guaranteed, his agent Drew Rosenhaus told ESPN on Monday.
Smith, 25, flourished last season with the Titans, recording career highs in receptions (41), receiving yards (448) and touchdown catches (eight). His touchdown reception total ranked fourth in the NFL among tight ends.
Smith has 114 receptions for 1,302 yards with 16 touchdowns in 60 career games with the Titans, who selected him in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
The Patriots squeezed very little out of their tight ends in the passing game last season. Ryan Izzo recorded 13 receptions for 199 yards, Devin Asiasi had two catches for 39 yards and a touchdown and Dalton Keene added three grabs for 16 yards.
