Patriots re-sign Gostkowski
NFL Super Bowl champions the New England Patriots re-signed kicker Stephen Gostkowski.
The Patriots announced the deal on Wednesday, with veteran Gostkowski reportedly signing a two-year contract.
The move comes after rumours started swirling that the San Francisco 49ers were interested in Gostkowski, who has spent his entire 13-year career in New England.
San Francisco already have placed the franchise tag on Robbie Gould, making their reported interest in Gostkowski intriguing.

Gould and the 49ers reportedly could not agree on a multi-year deal, which resulted in the franchise tag, though he is yet to sign.
Gostkowski, 35, has appeared in 200 regular-season games, as well as 28 postseason games.
He is New England's all-time leader with 1,743 points and 367 field goals, with his 87.4 per cent accuracy the highest in Patriots history and third in the NFL.
