BOSTON (CBS) – The New England Patriots officially announced re-signing of unrestricted free agent tackle Sebastian Vollmer on Tuesday.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but it’s reported to be a four-year deal worth up to $27-million.

The Patriots selected Vollmer in the second-round of the 2009 NFL draft, and the 28-year has played a pivotal role in protecting quarterback Tom Brady for the last four seasons. Standing at 6-8 and 320-pounds, Vollmer plays a big part in keeping the opposition from getting to Brady, and keeping the quarterback standing upright.

Vollmer has had a bit of a history with injuries, including back issues he suffered in college, but has played in 51 games for New England (including 44 starts) and started 15 games at right tackle and both postseason games in 2012.

In retaining Vollmer, the Patriots keep their 2012 offensive line intact, with Vollmer standing alongside Mike Connolly, Ryan Wendell, Nate Solder and Logan Mankins.
