The New England Patriots will return in 2011 with all five starters on their offensive line. The final 20 percent of the large-man puzzle fell into place when left tackle Matt Light agreed to terms on a two-year deal, per Greg Bedard and Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe.
Light is entering his 11th season.
The decision to pick Nate Solder in the first round of the 2011 draft caused some speculation that Light wouldn’t be back. Right tackle Sebastian Vollmer had been playing left tackle during the early preseason practices.
