LaAdrian Waddle has agreed to a one-year deal with the Patriots, according to a league source.

The 26-year-old has played in 15 regular-season games for the Patriots over the past two-plus years, including 12 contests (and four starts) in 2017 at right tackle. The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder should be in the mix for significant snaps in 2018, as New England lost starting left tackle Nate Solder in free agency to the Giants.
