The Patriots have a punter for 2019.

After going through the first week of free agency unsigned, Ryan Allen and the Patriots have agreed on a one-year deal, according to multiple reports. Allen never seemed to get interest from other clubs, so it isn't much of a surprise that he's returning.

The veteran left-footed punter did switch agents recently, which could have been part of the hold up.

Allen has been with the Patriots for all of his six NFL seasons, and has had some of his best games in the biggest, including Super Bowl LIII against the Rams.

Kicker Stephen Gostkowski remains unsigned and it would appear the team will turn its attention to that position next.
