The New England Patriots entered free agency with a few key needs, including an upgrade to the secondary. The Patriots pass defense last season was good enough to land them in the playoffs but it does need a few upgrades. One of the possible upgrades is safety Steve Gregory.
According to the San Diego Union Tribune, Gregory is visiting the Patriots.
Gregory was most recently with the San Diego Chargers in a so-so 2011 season. He's 28 years old so there's still some promise there. Gregory reportedly has at least three teams interested in his services. Outside of the Patriots, it's unknown who those teams are (which makes you wonder if they even exist).
Gregory became a starter in San Diego early last season when Bob Sanders went down with an injury.
