The Patriots continue to be heavily involved in NFL free agency, whether it’s bringing in new faces or retaining their own core players. So 98.5 The Sports Hub has you covered on Friday as free agency rumors and reports keep rolling in, particularly as they relate to the Patriots and the AFC East.
The major highlight of the Patriots’ action on Thursday was re-signing starting center David Andrews to a reported four-year deal. Initial reports indicated that Andrews intended to sign elsewhere, and the Patriots bringing back Ted Karras was another indication of that. But ostensibly, Andrews reversed course at some point in his exploration of the open market and decided to stay in New England.
That wasn’t the Patriots’ only move on Thursday, though. They also re-signed kicker Nick Folk and brought in former Packers defensive lineman Montravius Adams, both on one-year deals. Scroll down for more free agency rumors and news for the Pats and beyond.
