Jabrill Peppers is staying in New England for at least one more go-around.
As first reported by Adam Schefter on Tuesday, the Patriots are re-signing Peppers to a two-year deal. The news comes less than 24 hours before Peppers was set to officially become an unrestricted free agent. Details of the contract have yet to be reported.
Peppers represents the latest internal depth move by the Pats ahead of the start of the 2023 league year on Wednesday. The secondary has been a priority, in the wake of Devin McCourty announcing his retirement. Cornerbacks Jonathan Jones and Myles Bryant are also reportedly staying in New England.
