The Patriots and DT Kyle Love have agreed to a contract extension, according to his agent, Richard Kopelman of KLASS Sports.

Love, a 6-1, 315-pound third-year veteran, emerged as a starter for the Patriots last season when he played in all 16 games, starting 13. He finished with 33 tackles and three sacks in mostly a run-stuffing role in the middle of the Pats' 3-4 defense playing alongside Pro Bowler Vince Wilfork.

Reports say that Love's new deal, which carries him through this season and next, has a total maximum value of $3.09 million, including a $500,000 signing bonus. He had signed his exclusive-rights free-agent tender during the offseason but this deal replaces that.

A former undrafted free agent from Mississippi State, Love has had a solid training camp and is once again projected to start alongside Wilfork. In fact, it's likely that Love's performance made free-agent signee Jonathan Fanene expendable, and Fanene was cut Tuesday.
