The Patriots agreed to terms with first-round pick Nate Solder on Thursday on a four-year contract, according to a league source.
Solder’s deal is fully guaranteed for the first three seasons and includes a half-guaranteed base salary in the fourth year, with the other half coming as a March roster bonus, according to the source. It’s similar to the deal No. 21 overall pick Phil Taylor struck with the Browns.
The signing of Solder leaves the No. 19 overall pick, Prince Amukamara of the Giants, as the only unsigned first-round pick.
