    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.
