Davon Godchaux signs a two-year, $20.8 million extension with Patriots

From the Bengals trading orange for white to bringing back a vintage feel, Mike Florio and Chris Simms make their picks for the best alternate and throwback helmets for the 2022 NFL season.

Patriots defensive tackle Davon Godchaux was headed into the final year of his contract scheduled to make $6.5 million in base salary this season. He signed an extension Wednesday.

Drew Rosenhaus and Ryan Matha negotiated a two-year, $20.8 million extension with New England that includes $17.85 million fully guaranteed at signing.

Godchaux left Miami after four seasons to sign a two-year deal with the Patriots in the 2021 offseason.

He played 639 defensive snaps -- 59 percent of the team’s defensive snaps -- and 69 on special teams last season. Godchaux totaled 65 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and five quarterback hits.

Godchaux, Christian Barmore and Lawrence Guy give the Patriots a formidable group in the interior of the defensive line.
