The Patriots are re-signing their lone restricted free agent.

According to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com, the Patriots have reached a one-year deal with long-snapper Danny Aiken.

A Virginia product, the 25-year-old Aiken has been the Patriots’ long-snapper since 2011. He was credited with five special teams tackles in 2013.

Terms of Aiken’s deal are not known, but it’s probably reasonable to assume he will be re-signed to an amount lower than the lowest RFA tender.
