The Patriots have been seeking a veteran pass rusher and also have a visit scheduled with John Abraham. The glut of defensive ends on the market has led to several pass rushers signing lower-than-expected deals, and it wouldn’t be at all surprising to see the Patriots pick up a veteran defensive end at a reasonable price.
The 33-year-old Freeney may be slowing down, as his sack totals have declined from 13.5 to 10.0 to 8.5 to 5.0 over the last four seasons. And he wasn’t a particularly good fit in the defense that new coach Chuck Pagano installed last season in Indianapolis.
