New England Patriots have re-signed Brian Tyms to a new deal today.

The Super Bowl winners have announced that the Wide Receiver has put pen to paper on a new  contract after much uncertainty over whether he would be heading elsewhere in the NFL.

The 26-year-old, who was previously with Cleveland Browns, played in 11 games last season, scoring one touchdown following a 43-yard pass from Tom Brady. He also brought in a further five grabs for 94 yards.

Tyms returns

This time round, it is vital that Tyms gets off to a solid start for the Pats, who stuck by him during his suspension last year.

Tyms missed the first four games of the season after being found to have violated NFL rules on performance-enhancing drugs, but went on to be an important part of the squad that went on to win Super Bowl XLIX. Though he did not make it on against the Seattle Seahawks, he nonetheless received a Super Bowl ring to spur him into re-committing to Boston.

Brave moves

New England’s squad is still taking shape just one day into the new season. Having made the brave move not to keep hold of veteran cornerback Darrelle Revis, rejecting the $20 million option in his contract, head coach Bill Belichick is still waiting make a statement of intent at the very beginning of the new NFL year.

There is still work to be done too with fellow CB,Brandon Browner. He is free to listen to offers from elsewhere after becoming a free agent.

The Patriots have at least kept hold of one key figure in safety Devin McCourty who joins Tims in re-signing, a move that enhances their credentials for winning successive Super Bowls even further.
