Patriots Likely to Sign Fernando Bryant

When Fernando Bryant was released a month ago by the Lions, I was wondering if the Patriots would take a look at him.

Well apparently, they have.  Bryant visited with the team today, and is expected to sign a contract with the Patriots.

UPDATE: According to profootballtalk.com, the deal is signed, and will be a one year deal.

This siging will certainly qualify as the biggest of NE’s offseason.  At 5’11”, Bryant, a nine year veteran, will have the easiest path to being a starter next year.  He has some speed, with good cover skills, and can support the run.  Last year, Bryant had 69 tackles with two interceptions with the Lions.

The Patriots have made five signings this offseason, four of which have been in the defensive backfield.
