Patriots linebacker Dane Fletcher has resigned with the Patriots, inking a one-year deal to remain with the team.

The 26-year-old Montana State product, who was an rookie free agent, has done a very nice job providing depth at the inside/middle linebacker spot the last two seasons, as well as working as an occasional special teamer. The 6-foot-2, 245-pounder, who was slated to become a restricted free agent,  has 55 tackles (36 solo), with two sacks and a pair of passes defensed in 23 career games with New England.

He spent the entire 2012 season on the shelf after suffering a torn left ACL in New England’s preseason opener.
