The good news keeps on rolling in this morning, with Patriots offensive Matt Light reportedly being brought back into the mix.

According to Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe, the Patriots are working on a deal to retain Light, and reports that it could be completed later today.

So far during training camp it's been Sebastian Vollmer at his spot at left tackle, which since Light wasn't under contract was expected.  However, having Light back in the mix would allow them more flexibility and depth at one of the most important positions.

Hopefully another deal is coming to keep Logan Mankins long-term, but having both Light and Mankins on the left side gives them a great foundation heading into camp.

More to come.
