The Patriots nailed down their blind-side tackle, signing OLT Matt Light to a two-year deal, according to Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe.

Light has started 138 games in 10 seasons in New England, including all 16 in 2010. He was an unrestricted free agent.

OLG Logan Mankins signed his franchise tender earlier in the week, allowing the Patriots to return the left side of the line that was seventh in the league in percentage of sacks allowed.

The way we see it

When the Patriots used their first-round pick on Nate Solder, it looked like Light's time in New England may be finished, unless he agreed to a hometown discount on a one-year deal. But with the lockout and Solder's raw make-up that needs time to develop, Light became a top priority. Tom Brady is certainly happy to have Light for two more years, and the Pats successfully held on to their top two priorities in Light and Mankins.
