(NEW YORK) — Sebastian Vollmer is staying in New England.
Vollmer, who is entering his fifth NFL season, has agreed to a four-year deal with the Patriots that is worth up to $27 million, according to Mike Garafolo of USA Today.
The 28-year-old offensive tackle has played in 51 regular season games since joining the Patriots.
Last season, Vollmer dealt with a knee problem and back issues for most of the year but only missed one game.
According to The Boston Globe, Vollmer underwent a scope on his right knee last month.
