Hours after locking up one of their top role players, James Develin, to a two-year contract extension, the New England Patriots linked up on another pact with an under-the-radar asset. 

The Pats and long snapper Joe Cardona reportedly have agreed to a four-year contract extension, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Cardona, who entered the league as a fifth round pick of the Pats, out of the Naval Academy, back in 2015, is entering the final year of his current contract.

The dependable snapper has played in every game since joining the Pats and now has a chance to do so through the 2022 season.
