The New England Patriots have announced the signing of free agent defensive end Will Smith today.
Smith spent 9 years with the Saints and will be 33 in July.
Smith missed the entire 2013 season with an ACL tear he suffered in a Saints preseason game.
Will Smith will add depth to the Patriots pass rush and boost it if he has a rejuvenated year.
Smith recorded 6 sacks during his 2012 season.
