Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston reports that the Patriots are signing veteran DE Will Smith to a contract.
New England hosted Smith for a visit back in early April and since then reports mentioned that the Patriots were considered to be the favorites to sign him to a contract.
The Seahawks came up as a speculative option, however, nothing serious ever came from the suggestion.
Smith, 32, sat out the 2013 season after having been placed on the injured reserve with a torn ACL that he suffered during the Saints’ third preseason game.
We had him listed as the No. 11 player in our Best Available Free Agents list.
