Tom Brady didn't get his favorite receiver back. But he will get to play behind the same offensive line that protected him last season.

The Patriots have agreed to terms on a four-year contract with starting right tackle Sebastian Vollmer, according to multiple reports.

ESPN Boston's Field Yates was first to report the deal, with the Boston Herald's Karen Guregian specifying the number of years and adding Vollmer is expected to sign the deal Monday.

Vollmer, 28, has played his entire four-year career with the Pats. He missed one game last year and was a second-team All-Pro in 2010. Terms of his new contract were not immediately available.

Vollmer was the final piece to the Pats' keeping their line intact. Last week, New England signed former Falcons tackle Will Svitek for depth.
