The Patriots have their kicker.

After not re-signing Stephen Gostkowski almost a month into free agency, it appears a deal has been struck.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Gostkowski and the team have agreed on a two-year deal. Given how long he went unsigned, some speculated the team would be moving on, but that obviously is not the case.

Gostkowski, 35, has been with the Patriots for all 13 of his NFL seasons and is one of the best kickers in the entire league. It is worth pointing out he's missed several kicks in the biggest of games in recent years, but for the most part he's been very dependable.

The Patriots entered the offseason with their kicker and punter as unrestricted free agents, but now both will be back in 2019.
