BOSTON (CBS) – The Patriots did not re-sign Darrelle Revis, but that doesn’t mean they’re sitting idly by.
The team announced a handful of free agent signings on Wednesday, and media reports indicate more help is on the way, most notably Cleveland pass rusher Jabaal Sheard.
Sheard, 6-foot-3 and 264 pounds, is just 25 years old. In his four seasons with the Browns, Sheard totaled 23 sacks playing in both 4-3 and 3-4 schemes. Sheard’s deal is for two years and $11 million, including $5.5 million in guarantees, according to Pro Football Talk.
Revis is a Jet, and Brandon Browner is exploring his options. Also according to PFT, the Patriots added Raiders cornerback Chimdi Chekwa on a one-year deal.
