The Patriots have tweaked RT Sebastian Vollmer's contract.
The deal actually makes playing-time incentives easier for Vollmer to obtain. He'll earn an extra $1 million if he plays 70 percent of the Patriots' offensive snaps this season, and $2 million if that number rises to 80 percent. The previous thresholds were 80 and 90, respectively. Vollmer has played 91.2 percent of the Pats' snaps thus far. Mon, Nov 10, 2014 03:19:00 PM

Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer (leg) is participating in OTAs.

Vollmer broke his leg in October and should be full-go for training camp. He received extremely strong marks in pass protection last season.

Patriots placed RT Sebastian Vollmer on injured reserve with a broken right leg, ending his season.

It's a huge blow for the Pats, as their offensive line had been one of the few areas of the team not racked by injury. Vollmer was playing some of the best football of his career, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 2 right tackle. He'll be replaced by third-year G/C Marcus Cannon. Signed through 2016, Vollmer will be back as the Patriots' right tackle next season, but the injury costs him a $1 million roster bonus. Vollmer is also losing out on playing-time incentives.

The Boston Herald reports Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer has been diagnosed with a broken right leg, and is undergoing surgery on Monday.

It's likely a season-ending injury for Vollmer, who is in the midst of a strong campaign. However, it's not outside the realm of possibility that the Patriots could stash Vollmer on their weekly inactives list if they believe he could return for the playoffs. Vollmer has graded out as the No. 2 right tackle in Pro Football Focus' ratings. It's just one more issue for a struggling Tom Brady to deal with. Marcus Cannon should slide in opposite LT Nate Solder. It's a big downgrade.

Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer suffered an apparently serious right leg injury in Sunday's Week 8 game against the Dolphins.

Vollmer got rolled up on a stretch run play to the right side, and needed an air cast to be placed on his leg. Vollmer's screams could be heard on television he was in so much pain. Look for Marcus Cannon to replace him at right tackle.

Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer (knee scope) feels "really good."

Vollmer's knee and back issues limited his market in free agency, but he'll be 100 percent well ahead of training camp. "You kind of deal with injuries the way they come and you do what’s necessary for you to play with treatment and rehab and whatever else goes with it," Vollmer said. "Again, I feel really good now and I’m really looking forward to this upcoming season."
Fri, Mar 29, 2013 09:25:00 AM

Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer's four-year contract has a base value of just $17 million, with $8.25 million guaranteed.

It's a significantly below-market contract for one of the game's premier right tackles, and a steal of a deal for the Patriots. The big payment is a $7 million signing bonus, but Vollmer's base salaries are (relatively) dirt cheap throughout the contract's life and his New England future will be year to year beyond 2013. The max value, including incentives, is $27 million.

Patriots agreed to terms with RT Sebastian Vollmer on a four-year contract.

ESPN Boston first broke the news, and the Boston Herald had the years. After a shockingly quiet market in the first two weeks of free agency, it became increasingly apparent Vollmer would return to Foxboro. Offensive tackles flew off the market the first two days, leaving second-wave OTs Vollmer, Andre Smith, and Eric Winston to miss the boat on big money. New England will bring back its entire starting offensive line for 2013. One of football's top pass protectors when healthy, 28-year-old Vollmer graded out as a top-four right tackle in Pro Football Focus' 2012 ratings.
