The wide receiver, who caught a team-high 105 passes last year for the Patriots (to go along with 1,056 yards and six touchdowns, all of which were career-highs) entered free agency after reportedly turning down a three-year deal from New England, but is now set to return to the team that drafted him in the seventh round in 2009. In all, the 27-year-old has played five years in the league and has 174 career receptions to go along with 1,770 yards and 10 touchdowns. For more Patriots news, check out weei.com/patriots.
