Jalen Mills and the New England Patriots have agreed to a reworked deal.

The revised, one-year contract is incentive-laden and potentially could be worth as much as $6.1 million. He had been slated to hit the salary cap for $6.625 million this season after signing a four-year, $24 million contract in 2021.

The Patriots could try Mills at safety to replace Devin McCourty in addition to his primary position of cornerback.
