Patriots long snapper Joe Cardona is re-signing with the team.
Retired Patriots defensive back Jason McCourty broke the news, and Mike Reiss of ESPN reports it is a four-year deal with a $1 million signing bonus.
Cardona, who has played the past eight seasons in New England, is the team’s second-longest tenured player behind Matthew Slater.
Cardona played 14 games last season before going on injured reserve with a torn tendon in his foot. It was the first games he ever missed in his career.
Cardona has played 127 games.
