Patriots sign Jeremy Hill

Patriots sign Jeremy Hill

The Patriots ran through the schedule during the back half of the campaign, though the postseason run came to an end with a Super Bowl loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Patriots have added another asset in that regard to the mix by signing former Atlanta Falcons defensive end Adrian Clayborn.

After watching some of their free agents sign elsewhere this week, the New England Patriots made a few additions of their own on Friday. Other than 2012 and 2014 campaigns that were nearly entirely lost to injury, Clayborn has averaged six sacks per season in his career.

With Hill coming to New England, look for him to be a spare part who can rotate in and provide something in the passing game.

The Patriots are finally getting involved in the free agent market.

Clayborn began his career as a first-round draft pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he posted 7.5 sacks - his previous benchmark - as a rookie in 2011. In 2012, he missed nearly the entire season with a torn ACL. In his four years with the Cincinnati Bengals, Hill caught 67 passes.

Incredibly, Marvin Lewis appeared to throw Hill under the bus after he opted for season-ending ankle surgery. The back ran for 1,124 yards and nine touchdowns in 2014.

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.

Hill finished with 37 carries for 116 yards in seven games played in 2017.
