Matt Light re ups for two years

By: Greg
The most important positions in the NFL is the offensive line, without a good one your QB wont have time to throw and get thier heads taken off. In the off season it looked like there would be at least two new starting offensive linemen protecting Brady but Logan Mankins agreed to sign the franchise tag and now Matt Light has agreed to a two year deal.

This move means that the Pats are bring back all of thier starting offensive linemen, a group that was outstanding last year. The Pats also draft Nate Solder in the first round and Marcus Cannon (a projected 2nd rd pick) later in the draft, making the Pats offensive lines one of the best groups on paper. The signing of Light gives the two rookies time to be groomed and eased into the NFL.
I am sure that Brady feels a lot better having the 11 year veteran protecting him for another year.
