Adam Schefter reported Tuesday, citing a source, that the Patriots are re-signing kicker Stephen Gostkowski to a two-year contract. NBC Sports Boston's Tom E. Curran confirmed the report.
Earlier Tuesday, a report surfaced that the San Francisco 49ers were "showing interest" in Gostkowski, who was an unrestricted free agent.
Gostkowski is one of the most accurate kickers in league history, and his 87.38 percent field goal rate ranks third-best all-time.
The veteran kicker is the second-longest tenured Patriots player behind quarterback Tom Brady. The Patriots drafted Gostkowski in the fourth round (pick No. 118) of the 2006 NFL Draft out of Memphis.
Gostkowski has played for three Super Bowl-winning teams in New England. He went 2-for-3 on field goal attempts in the Patriots' win over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII in February.
