The Patriots didn't pick up Phillip Dorsett's fifth-year option and now they apparently are tweaking his contract.

According to ESPN's Field Yates, the wide out agreed to a reduction in the roster bonus due the fifth day of training camp. It went down from $450,000 to $150,000, but he now can earn $100,000 in per-game roster bonuses and $150,000 in reception incentives.

Dorsett was acquired by the team last year in the trade for Jacoby Brissett.

In 15 games last year he caught 12 passes for 194 yards, but with an entire offseason in the organization many expect him to have a much better 2018 campaign.
