NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Patriots RT Marcus Cannon's five-year extension is worth $32.5 million, and includes $14.5 million guaranteed.

Both in overall value and guaranteed money, that's in the Mitchell Schwartz range, as ESPN's Field Yates predicted. Going on 29, Cannon will be paired up with Nate Solder through at least next season. Cannon is signed through 2021. Solder will be a free agent in 2018.

Patriots signed RT Marcus Cannon to a five-year extension through 2021.

Rumored to be a release candidate early last offseason, Cannon has gone from roster bubble to swing tackle to right tackle of the future. The 2011 fifth-rounder has had a breakout campaign, starting 10-of-11 games and grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 7 right tackle. He was scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent. A mountainous 6-foot-5, 335 pounds, Cannon turned 28 in May.

ESPN's Mike Reiss said the Patriots' decision not to draft an offensive tackle suggests they are comfortable with Marcus Cannon retaining the swing role.

There were loud rumblings early this offseason suggesting Cannon's spot on the roster was in danger, but those have died down. Even if the Patriots view third-round pick Joe Thuney as an option at tackle, Cannon is now the favorite to open the season in the swing role. LaAdrian Waddle will also be in the mix.

CBS Boston believes Patriots OT Marcus Cannon will be cut this offseason.

Cannon was forced into action after LT Nate Solder was lost to a torn bicep four games into the season. He failed miserably on the left side, and a switch to right tackle in December did not do much to help. Cannon was demolished by Von Miller in the Championship Game loss. Set to count $4.754 million against the cap, the Patriots will likely look for cheaper and better depth at tackle.

Patriots signed G/T Marcus Cannon to a two-year contract extension through 2016.

Cannon has experience at both guard and tackle, but has been running as New England's No. 3 tackle this season. The No. 138 overall pick of the 2011 draft, Cannon was headed into the final year of his rookie deal. Cannon has a solid swing skill-set, but it's unlikely the Pats view him as a future long-term starter.
