News: Mayo (knee) has agreed to a restructured contract that will keep him with the Patriots this season, NESN.com reports.
Impact: Mayo's cap hit was set to exceed $10 million in 2015, but per the report, the 29-year-old has agreed to a one-year pact worth $4.5 million. Mayo's last two seasons have been slowed by injuries, but his experience and leadership are assets to the team's defense and assuming his health in 2015, Mayo -- who racked up 53 tackles in six games last season -- is in line start at linebacker for the Pats, along with Dont'a Hightower and Jamie Collins.
