Reports: Patriots Extend Exclusive Rights Tender To Kyle Love

BOSTON (CBS) – The New England Patriots are taking care of some of their own business before the NFL’s free agency period begins Tuesday afternoon.

New England has extended an exclusive rights free-agent tender to defensive tackle Kyle Love, according to multiple reports. Not tendering Love would have made the 25-year-old a free agent and free to sign with any other team.
