Fullback James Develin and the Patriots have been a good match for the last six years and it appears it will continue.

According to a source, the Pro Bowl fullback is close to signing a two-year extension with the team. His deal was set to expire at the end of this season.

Develin got recognized on a national level this past season as he made his first Pro Bowl. In his five years in the league, he has one touchdown. The Brown product is known as one of the most hard-working players on the entire roster and has the respect of everyone, including the coaching staff.

Jeff Howe of The Athletic was first to report the news.
