2014 NFL Free Agency: New England Patriots re-sign Ryan Wendell

Although the New England Patriots lost running back LaGarrette Blount to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Friday afternoon, they did cut a deal with one of his blockers, re-signing veteran center Ryan Wendell.

The move was first reported by Tom E. Curran of CSN New England and confirmed by Field Yates of ESPN Boston.



Ben Volin of The Boston Globe has the details.

Wendell, a former Fresno State Bulldog, went undrafted in 2008 and caught on with the Patriots’ practice squad. In 2010, he began seeing regular time, even starting two games.

In 2012, Wendell won the starting center job.
