The New England Patriots reportedly are bringing back at least one free agent from last year's AFC Championship team.

A league source told Jim McBride of The Boston Globe that the Patriots have agreed to a multi-year contract with running back Rex Burkhead.

In 2017, the versatile Burkhead scored eight touchdowns while gaining more than 500 yards both rushing and receiving.

The signing comes after players like Danny Amendola, Nate Solder, Dion Lewis, and Malcolm Butler left the Patriots for other teams.
