A two-day jump into the open market will lead David Andrews back to New England, as Andrews and the Patriots have agreed to a new four-year contract to keep the longtime team captain in Foxborough, according to multiple reports.
ESPN’s Mike Reiss and Field Yates were the first to report the deal.
The 6-foot-3, 300-pound Andrews, who missed all of the 2019 season due to blood clot issues, made 12 starts in 2020, and has started 69 of a possible 72 games since starting his NFL career with the Patriots back in 2015.
Andrews was also under center for Super Bowl-winning Patriot squads in both Super Bowl LI and Super Bowl LIII.
The 28-year-old’s re-signing adds another layer to what’s been a busy week of movement on the Patriot offensive line, and comes a day after the Patriots brought back Ted Karras and with the Trent Brown acquisition made official. The Patriots also lost guard Joe Thuney to the Chiefs on an $80 million contract, and shipped Marcus Cannon to the Texans.
There are still plenty of notable free agents available. Scroll down for our list of names to know.
