Patriots signing Will Smith

The New England Patriots are signing former New Orleans Saints defensive end Will Smith, according to multiple reports.

Smith missed last season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament and was cut this offseason.

Smith recorded a career-high 13 sacks in 2009.

A 6-foot-3, 282-pounder from Ohio State, Smith had six sacks as recently as 2012.

He visited the Patriots last month.
