The Patriots and Van Noy agreed to terms on a two-year contract Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

A significant free-agent addition for the Dolphins just last offseason, Van Noy found himself without a job last week as the team attempted to become cap compliant. He'll now return to New England, where he averaged 73.7 tackles and 5.2 sacks per season between 2017 and 2019. Van Noy likely will work in tandem with offseason addition Matthew Judon at outside linebacker.
