Dillon, Patriots reach contract extension, agent says

April 11, 2005

CBS SportsLine.com wire reports

BOSTON -- New England Patriots running back Corey Dillon signed a contract extension Monday that could keep him with New England for the rest of his career.

The agreement guarantees the 31-year-old Dillon $10 million over two years and could be extended for up to five years and a total $25 million in base pay and various bonuses, said his agent, Steven Feldman.

Dillon was due to receive $3.85 million next season in the final year of his contract, but the Patriots and Dillon began discussing a long-term deal after their 24-21 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl in February, Feldman said.

"They stepped up and took care of him, even though he's on the wrong side of 30," Feldman said. "This deal allows him to end his career as a Patriot."

Patriots spokesman Stacey James didn't immediately return phone calls seeking comment.

Dillon spent seven years with the Cincinnati Bengals before being traded to the Patriots before last season. He rushed for a career-high and team-record 1,635 yards and 12 touchdowns last season as the team won its third Super Bowl in four years.

Yet his legacy remains anchored to him...even out of Cincy he can't escape the shadow of the "Pickens clause"... :lol:

Patriots | Clauses in Dillon's New Deal - from www.KFFL.com

Tue, 12 Apr 2005 10:09:21 -0700

Michael Felger, of the Boston Herald, reports the two-year, $10 million contract extension agreed to by New England Patriots RB Corey Dillon includes "skill and injury" guarantees, according to his agent, Steve Feldman. While Feldman would not disclose how Dillon would be paid the bonuses and salary, the clauses in the deal mean the money is not guaranteed if Dillon suffers a non-football injury or has a spate of off-field issues.

Better keep that nice sunny disposition, Corey...
