Patriots re-sign James Develin

Yesterday, the Patriots re-signed fullback James Develin to a one-year deal.

Develin, who would have been a restricted free agent, was a key cog in short-yardage and goal line situations during the 2014-2015 season, but suffered a broken leg during the preseason that kept him out all of 2015-2016.

Because of the injury, the Pats were able to get him back for less than the $1.6 million restricted free agent tender.
