The New England Patriots have landed defensive end Jonathan Fanene in free agency, according to multiple reports. Fanene is a former seventh round pick in the 2005 NFL draft and spent all seven years of his career with the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Patriots will also be looking to add to the secondary in free agency.
This is New England's first signing of the free agency period, which is a departure from the activity in last year's free agency period. New England still seeks a receiver, perhaps someone like Brandon Lloyd.
