According to ESPN, the team will host veteran defensive end Will Smith for an upcoming visit.
The 32-year-old Smith, who has spent the last 10 years with the New Orleans Saints, did not play last season after suffering an ACL in training camp. He has 67.5 career sacks, and recorded a career-high 13 in 2009. He recorded six sacks in 2012 and 6.5 in 2011.
The Patriots always find a way to sign an aging veteran on defense and the guy performs. Smith could be a huge steal, as his market has been quiet.
