The New England Patriots let Vince Wilfork hit free agency, but they’re bringing back their other big nose tackle.

The Patriots tendered defensive tackle Sealver Siliga, fullback James Develin and linebacker James Morris one-year contracts as exclusive-rights free agents. They declined to tender wide receivers Brian Tyms and Greg Orton, making them free agents.

Siliga missed part of the 2014 season with a foot injury, but he played in seven games, starting five. He recorded 32 tackles with 2.5 sacks, and his role could increase with Wilfork free to sign with another team.

Develin had six catches for 43 yards last season and three carries for 5 yards. Morris missed all of his rookie season with a torn ACL suffered during the Patriots’ preseason finale.
