Patriots RB Rex Burkhead has agreed to a restructured deal. He gets a $550,000 signing bonus but drops his base salary from $2.5 million to $1.05 million, according to ESPN's Field Yates. The forgotten man in New England's backfield, Burkhead ranked 47th among RBs in total PPR points last year and finished as a top-24 RB in 4 of his 13 games. He's worth considering at the tail end of best-ball drafts.
