The New England Patriots have started NFL free agency by taking care of some internal roster spots. First they swung a big trade to send tight end Jonnu Smith to the Falcons, then they locked up cornerback Jonathan Jones with a new two-year deal. Now, they’ve turned their attention to the defensive line.
Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald first reported Monday that the Patriots are expected to re-sign defensive tackle Carl Davis to a one-year deal. Mike Reiss later confirmed that the two sides are “closing on an agreement.”
