The Patriots will have a new look next season, but their special teams will reportedly continue to be led by a proven veteran.

Coming off his seventh consecutive Pro Bowl season, special teams captain Matthew Slater has agreed to a two-year deal with the Patriots, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

ESPN reports that Slater, 32, visited the Pittsburgh Steelers last week.

A year ago, Slater won the Bart Starr Award, which recognizes character and leadership both on the field and off it.
