The New England patriots has renewed his contract with Matthew Slater, a longtime secret service captain.
The contract is for two years and is similar in value to the last one of Slater’s. He had previously signed a two-year contract with Patriots with an average annual salary of $2.6 million.
Slater, who will turn 35 in September, has been captain of the team’s secret service team every year since 2011. He was the team leader after eight professional titles. After every patriot win, manager bill Bellick will speak to players and coaches.
Slater is the most frequently selected special service player in NFL history. He has been the team’s top secret service in seven of his 12 seasons.
Slater, who was selected in the fifth round of the 2008 draft, made only one catch, pushing 46 yards. Although Slater is listed as an outside catcher, he rarely plays as an outside catcher, usually only playing as an open circuit player in short yards.
