Patriots sign Adrian Clayborn and Jeremy Hill

NFL free agent rumors DE Adrian Clayborn meeting with Patriots

The New England Patriots have reportedly signed offensive tackle Matt Tobin, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN.

Clayborn, 29, racked up 9.5 sacks in 2017, including five in one game against Cowboys backup left tackle Chaz Green. 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.

It's the third transaction of the day for the Patriots, who first addressed a dire need when they signed pass rusher Adrian Clayborn to bolster the front seven. Pro Football Focus rated him the 19th best edge rusher in the NFL last season, graded a few points below the Patriots' 2017 sack leader, Trey Flowers. Harrison was next at 77.6.

Known for his relentless effort, Clayborn also had a team-high 17 quarterback hits this past season. Lee (3.5 sacks) is under contract as well as Geneo Grissom and Keionta Davis. But with the Bengals drafting Jeremy Mixon previous year, Hill's carries dropped significantly.

The Patriots re-signed running back Rex Burkhead earlier this week after watching fellow free-agent back Dion Lewis leave to join the Tennessee Titans. The 25-year-old is coming off his worst season in the National Football League, rushing for 116 yards in seven games last season, which ended early due to an ankle injury.

Hill's first three seasons, however, were a different story.

He had a successful rookie season in 2014, rushing 222 times for 1,124 yards and nine touchdowns. He also caught 63 passes for 468 yards and a touchdown.
