Details on Hoomanawanui's restructure

September, 2, 2013
Tight end Michael Hoomanawanui restructured his contract, which was a one-year deal that would have paid him a base salary of $1.3 million this season.

Here are the new details:

Base salary

$358,000 (for full season if he lands on reserve list)

$125,000 if he plays 25 percent of snaps
$250,000 if he plays 35 percent of snaps
$370,000 if he plays 45 percent of snaps

So if Hoomanawanui is on the team all season, and plays in 45 percent of the offensive snaps, he will earn $1 million ($630,000 base plus $370,000 in incentives).

Hoomanawanui played 22.8 percent of the offensive snaps last season, according to ESPNBoston tracking. His playing time could spike early this season until Rob Gronkowski returns to full health.
