Kyle Love, New England Patriots reach contract extension

The New England Patriots and defensive tackle Kyle Love have agreed on a contract extension that will keep him with the team through 2014, according to his agent, Richard Kopelman of KLASS Sports.

Essentially a two-year deal, Love's contract has a maximum value of $3.09 million and has a $500,000 signing bonus. Love had signed an exclusive rights free-agent tender earlier this summer, and this contract takes him through restricted free agency, as well.

The former undrafted free agent from Mississippi State is a returning starter for the Patriots, having made 33 tackles last season playing alongside Vince Wilfork.
