Patriots are signing veteran DE Will Smith, formerly of the Saints, per source.

Smith missed all of last season with a torn ACL which is a huge red flag for a player turning 33 in July. This deal has been in the works for nearly a month (most likely waiting for his price to come down) but the Patriots were the only team that the veteran defensive end visited during his free agency period, so this is no surprise that the deal was done. According to reporter Mike Florio, it's a one-year deal for the 10-year vet.
