New England Patriots are meeting with Will Smith imminently and the potential move could see the AFC West side significantly improve their defensive line.
Tom Brady and his Pats certainly need plenty of help on the defensive side of the ball ahead of the 2014 NFL season, with a leaking defense halting them from making the Super Bowl two years running.
Head coach Bill Belichick is hell bent on trying to change the fortunes of his defense, and it seems that their focus is to try and bring in the former New Orleans Saints defensive end.
NFL insider Mike Reiss explained via Twitter today, "Per @ClaytonESPN, free-agent DE Will Smith, formerly of the Saints, is visiting New England today."
The 32-year-old will turn 33 before next season begins, and whether he has anything left in the tank remains a big question.
The veteran one-time Pro Bowl selection missed all of last season after tearing his ACL in pre-season. With seven sacks in the last seven years, it would be a signing that would hardly shake the NFL.
However, the Pats have a history of making what appear to be small moves and make them worth their while.
