FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP)The New England Patriots re-signed restricted free-agent defensive lineman Adam Butler on Friday.

The move adds some stability to the line following the departure of defensive tackle Danny Shelton to Detroit during free agency.

Butler has spent the past three seasons in New England after signing as an undrafted free agent in 2017. He’s appeared in 48 regular-season games with eight starts, making 62 tackles and 11 sacks.

He had a career-high 26 tackles and six sacks in 2019.
