The New England Patriots have been the most active NFL team thus far in free agency, and according to ESPN’s Field Yates, the team is ready to make yet another move to help their roster: bringing back starting center David Andrews on a four-year deal.
This deal shows loyalty after the center, who has been with New England since he signed with them as an undrafted free agent back in 2015, tested the free agent market.
It appeared that Andrews was leaving after some of his teammates like Julian Edelman stated on social media that it would be tough to see one of the team captains leave.
However, Andrews is ready to continue his NFL career in New England, inking a deal that would keep him with the Pats through 2025.
Andrews isn’t the only lineman that the Pats have come to terms with, as reports say the team is also bringing back Ted Karras on a one-year deal worth $4 million.
Karras is there to provide depth to the line and can serve as a solid backup to Andrews.
The Patriots drafted Karras out of Illinois in the sixth round of the 2016 draft and attempted to re-sign him last offseason to a multiyear deal, but instead he opted for a one-year pact with the Dolphins.
