Source: Love signs ERFA tender

Patriots defensive tackle Kyle Love has signed his one-year exclusive-rights free agent tender, a league source confirms.

Love, who originally joined the team as an undrafted free agent in 2010, started 13 games last season, recording 33 tackles and three sacks.

The move coincides with Love reporting for the team's offseason program, which began on Monday.

Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe was the first to report the re-signing.
