Rhamondre Stevenson Agrees to a 4-Year Extension With the Patriots

The New England Patriots and running back Rhamondre Stevenson have agreed on a 4-year $36 million extension, with $17 million being fully guaranteed.

Now that the Patriots are under a new regime, the team has decided that Rhamondre Stevenson is one of the building blocks for the team’s future. The Patriots drafted Stevenson in the fourth round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Stevenson is the sixth player that the Patriots have either extended or re-signed since new Vice President of Personnel Eric Wolf and head coach Jerod Mayo took over in their respective roles with the Patriots.

 

Over his three seasons with the Patriots, the talented running back has rushed 499 times for 2,265 yards and 14 touchdowns. In the 41 games he has played, Stevenson also illustrated that he is an asset in the receiving game by bringing in 121 receptions for 782 yards and a touchdown. Although he has played in 41 games, Stevenson has only started in 21 of them. He has been dinged up a few times with injuries that have caused him to miss nine games during that span.

 

The Patriots also signed running back Antonio Gibson during the offseason which may affect Stevenson in the receiving game. Still, this extension should lead to more overall touches for the Patriots RB1 heading into the season. Stevenson has an ADP of 74, making him a bargain at the beginning of the seventh round. In dynasty leagues, it may be a good time to sell him with this news of extension. Either way, he should be a fine RB2 for fantasy managers this season.
