Contract for Light in the works

The Patriots are working on a deal to retain left tackle Matt Light and the hope is that it will completed later today, NFL sources said.

With guard Logan Mankins already back in the fold, Light’s return will give the Patriots the veteran left side of the line that has protected quarterback Tom Brady for much of his career.

If Light doesn’t return, then left tackle would fall to either first-round pick Nate Solder, or right tackle Sebastian Vollmer.
