BOSTON (AP) -Veteran linebacker Tedy Bruschi, who recovered from a stroke in 2005 and later resumed his career, has agreed to a multiyear contract with the Patriots.
A person within the league, speaking Thursday night on condition of anonymity, said the deal is expected to be signed Friday.
Bruschi started every game this past season. But it was uncertain if the 34-year-old Bruschi would return after the Patriots lost to the New York Giants in the Super Bowl.
Patriots spokesman Stacey James said the team does not confirm contracts until they are signed.
Ten days after helping New England win the 2005 Super Bowl, Bruschi was hospitalized by a minor stroke. But after having surgery to repair a hole in his heart, he vigorously began an improbable comeback.
