Four-year deal for Ted Larsen

By Mike Reiss

The following is the breakdown of sixth-round draft choice Ted Larsen’s four-year, $1.87 million contract with the Patriots:

2010: $320,000
2011: $405,000
2012: $490,000
2013: $575,000

The signing bonus is $80,300, and there are escalators in the final year of the contract that could increase the 2013 base salary.

“Both sides were real like-minded, looking for something fair that made sense for everybody,” said agent Noel LaMontagne of Eastern Athletic Services, which also represents Patriots center Dan Koppen. “It took about two weeks, if that.”
