Steve Gregory, Patriots Agree To 3-Year Contract

The New England Patriots have been relatively quiet in free agency thus far, only signing defensive tackle Jonathan Fanene to a contract. On Thursday, they added some secondary help by signing former Chargers safety Steve Gregory. It's a three-year deal, according to his agent, David Canter.

The Patriots are also scheduled to visit with former Redskins safety LaRon Landry, according to reports.

Versatility is the key with Gregory, who can play safety and cornerback. He spent the first six years of his career with the Chargers, making 13 starts last season. He'll be able to contribute quickly in Bill Belichick's defense.

The Patriots' free-agency goals have been addressing the secondary and adding a receiver. Gregory helps with the secondary, but more moves will likely be coming. Brandon Lloyd remains a possibility at receiver.
