BOSTON (CBS) – The New England Patriots’ offensive line will have a steady contributor returning in 2012, according to reports.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Patriots and center Dan Koppen have agreed on a new contract, with the NFL Network’s Albert Breer reporting it’s a two-year deal.

A 2003 fifth-round pick out of Boston College, Koppen has started 120 games for New England over his nine-year career. The 32-year-old Koppen missed all but one game in 2011 after suffering a broken left fibula in the Patriots’ opening game against the Dolphins.

A few weeks ago, the Patriots re-signed Dan Connolly — Koppen’s replacement in 2011 — to a three-year, $9.7 deal.
