The Patriots had both Dwight Freeney and John Abraham in for visits on Friday, both could greatly help the Patriots defense, but neither have signed and both are moving on.

Now, this doesn't exactly rule out that either could sign with the Patriots. However, it's not the best sign. If the Patriots really wanted them to stay in New England, you'd think they wouldn't have left. This indicates that either talks didn't go well or the Patriots have an offer out and the two want to see if they can beat it.
It's in my opinion that the Patriots need to bring in at least one of those guys. The pass rush should be a number one priority as it hasn't been up to par the past several years. Many blame the secondary of giving up big plays, but games are won up front and by making the quarterback uncomfortabl...

WORTH A LOOK
The Broncos are exploring pass rushing options in the wake of Elvis Dumervil's fax fiasco. They're bringing in a few top players.
According to Pro Football Talk, the Pittsburgh Steelers are one of three teams interested in free agent outside linebackers Elvis Dumervil and Dwight Freeney.
This isn't the first time we have heard that the Steelers have an interest in Dumervil, but it is the first time that Freeney's name has been linked to Pittsburgh.
Mike Florio reports that Dumervil’s decision is...
Free agent defensive end Elvis Dumervil will see what the
rest of the market has to offer after being less than pleased with the contract
proposal he recently received from the Denver Broncos. While the Broncos remain
hopeful of reaching an agreement with Dumervil, they are lining up
alternatives, as the team is set to host free agent defensive ends Dwight
Freeney and John Abraham...
The Indianapolis Colts parted ways with their most prolific pass rusher in Dwight Freeney, because the 3-4 defense simply doesn’t fit his skill set. However that means the Colts will have to find a 3-4 edge rusher in the 2013 NFL draft that can make Robert Mathis’ job easier next season.
So let’s take a look at what the Colts’ 3-4 edge rusher options are, and see if the Colts...
The Patriots had Dwight Freeney and John Abraham in for a visit just about a week ago today. The visits didn't result in any signings, and both moved on to meet with the Denver Broncos today. Neither of those visits ended in any commitments either, as it's likely the Broncos were just doing their due diligence in case they lose pass rusher Elvis Dumervil. Dumvervill, of course...
The Denver Broncos have expressed interest in three free agent pass-rushers: John Abraham, Dwight Freeney, and their own former defensive end Elvis Dumervil. The Broncos will meet with the first two on Thursday; they have an offer extended to Dumervil at present.
So how do these free agent defensive ends compare? Let’s break it down –
2012 PFF Score...
The Denver Broncos want Elvis Dumervil to return to the fold, but just in case he doesn’t, the team is trying to secure plan A and B.
Adam Schefter is reporting that both Dwight Freeney and John Abraham are scheduled to visit the Broncos in the next day or so. Freeney tonight, and Abraham tomorrow or Friday.

Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com reports that the Ravens have already ”expressed interest” in free agent DE Dwight Freeney.
La Canfora mentions that Baltimore is still in the market for pass-rusher, but only at the “right price.” League sources have informed him that Elvis Dumervil remains the Ravens’ “top target.”
There are a few issues with this idea. First, Dumervil...
According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, the Denver Broncos plan on bringing in free agents John Abraham and Dwight Freeney tomorrow, as they look for a replacement for Elvis Dumervil.

It also sounds like Dumvervil is ready...
We’re one week into free agency, and while many of the top players like Mike Wallace, Aqib Talib and Paul Kruger are off the market, there are still plenty of top players out there who could pay immediate dividends for their new team.
The market for cornerbacks has been brutal. That may be why players like Brent Grimes, Nnamdi Asomugha and Antoine Winfield are fighting for the...
The New England Patriots had Adrian Wilson, John Abraham, and Dwight Freeney come for visits, and the only one to come out with a contract that has a signature on it is Adrian Wilson. In addition, Elvis Dumervil's contract never went through, so he is a free agent. The final big name defensive end available is Osi Umenyiora (who I wrote about signing a while ago).
