The Patriots and cornerback Leigh Bodden finally agreed on a contract Tuesday, signing a four-year deal through 2013. Bodden had visited with the Houston Texans on Monday, but always maintained his interested in re-signing with the Pats.

Bodden’s agent, Alvin Keels, announced the deal via Twitter:

Leigh Bodden has officially agreed to terms with the New England Patriots on a 4 year deal thru the 2013 season.

Bodden, 28, finished with 55 tackles and five interceptions in his first year with the Patriots.

Jarvis Green Joins Broncos

In other Pats news, defensive end Jarvis Green joined the Denver Broncos, signing a four-year deal for a maximum value of $20 million. Green will get $7 million in guaranteed money.

Green had 36 tackles and one sack last season for the Pats. His best year came in 2006, when Green finished with 7.5 sacks.

With Bodden staying and Green going, the Patriots have just four unrestricted free agents still left on the open market: DE/OLB Derrick Burgess, RB Kevin Faulk, P Chris Hanson and TE Benjamin Watson.

Patriots Sign LB Marques Murrel

The Pats have signed former Jet Marques Murrel, according to Bob Kraft (who interviewed on WEEI on Tuesday). Murrel will help the Pats out on special teams, just as he did the last two years with the Jets.

If the name sounds familiar to you, it should: Marques is the younger brother of former Jets running back Adrian Murrel.
