Patriots Free Agent Moves: New England Reportedly Signs Hill, Clayborn & Tobin

  • Adrian Clayborn runs onto the field for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the American flag before facing the San Francisco 49ers

According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, defensive end Adrian Clayborn plans on flying to New England Thursday night for a visit with the team. Clayborn had 9.5 sacks - six of which came in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys - and 56 total pressures in 2017.

Clayborn reportedly signed a two-year deal with a maximum value of $12.5 million that likely includes per-game active roster bonuses.

The 29-year-old former Tampa Bay Buccaneer spent the last three seasons with the Atlanta Falcons.

No details have been released on the deal yet.

New England had kept running back Rex Burkhead, special-teamers Nate Ebner and Brandon King and traded for cornerback Jason McCourty earlier this week, but the Patriots had lost mainstays Nate Solder, Dion Lewis, Malcolm Butler and Danny Amendola via free agency. He didn't play against the Patriots in Super Bowl LI, as he was injured.

Clayborn, who's an oversized defensive end at 6-foot-3, 280 pounds, primarily played defensive tackle in 2015, when he had three sacks and 44 total pressures.

The single-game sack mark aside, Clayborn has become a more effective pass-rusher over the last three seasons in Atlanta recording 17.0 of his 30.0 career sacks over that span.

The addition of Clayborn addresses an area of weakness for the Patriots, who were looking for pass-rushing help. The lack of depth showed throughout the season as the Patriots mixed and matched with several players like Cassius Marsh, Eric Lee and James Harrison. Other than 2012 and 2014 campaigns that were nearly entirely lost to injury, Clayborn has averaged six sacks per season in his career.

After scoring 20 touchdowns in his first two years in the league, Hill last found the end zone in Week 15 of the 2016 season. He was a reserve last season for Seattle after four seasons with Philadelphia.

Hill, 25, had 1,124 yards and nine rushing touchdowns in his rookie year of 2014, but has not been able to match that production.
