Report: Light, Patriots strike deal

Tackle Matt Light and the Patriots have agreed on a two-year contract, according to the Boston Globe.

Light, a 10-year veteran who has spent his entire career with New England, was an unrestricted free agent. He has made three Pro Bowls and won three Super Bowls.

Talking about Light this morning, director of player personnel Nick Casserio said, “Matt’s been a good player for us for a long time. I’d say there are discussions that are ongoing. I don’t want to put a timetable on it, but Matt’s made a lot of contributions to this team, he’s been a good player, so we’ll see what happens.”
