The New England Patriots re-signed running back Rex Burkhead to a multi-year contract.

After losing running back Dion Lewis to the Titans and losing other key players in the free agency like Danny Amendola, many expected that the Patriots weren’t going to let Burkhead leave too.

Burkhead didn’t draw any known interest outside of New England during the “legal tampering” period and is back in New England, joining Mike Gillislee and James White. On the positive side of things, Burkhead has a chance to earn more work in 2018 after an injury-filled 2017.
