Deontae Skinner was signed to a three-year deal by the Patriots on May 13, 2014.

On May 14, 2014 ESPNBoston's Mike Reiss reported that " The following is a look at the nine undrafted free agents signed by the New England Patriots and the guaranteed money in their contracts:

LB Cameron Gordon:$35,000 ($15,000 signing bonus, $20,000 base salary)
RB Stephen Houston: $22,500 ($7,500 signing bonus, $15,000 base salary)
TE Asa Watson:$20,000 ($3,000 signing bonus, $17,000 base salary)
TE Justin Jones: $15,000 ($5,000 signing bonus, $10,000 base salary)
RB Roy Finch: $10,000 ($5,000 signing bonus, $5,000 base salary)
Safety Shamiel Gary: $10,000 ($5,000 signing bonus, $5,000 base salary)
CB Travis Hawkins: $10,000 ($5,000 signing bonus, $5,000 base salary)
LB Deontae Skinner: $5,000 ($5,000 base salary)
TE Tyler Beck: $1,500 ($1,500 signing bonus)

ANALYSIS: This totals $47,000 in signing bonuses and $82,000 in guaranteed base salary. When a player has a higher total in guaranteed money, it usually reflects that there was more competition from other teams, which means those players fall into the "priority free agent" category.
