Bill Belichik has arguably his best defense since his first Superbowl wins but isn’t finished improving the Patriots – not by a long shot it seems.
On Tuesday the New England Patriots acquired DL Jerel Worthy from the Green Bay Packers in exchange for an undisclosed late-round draft pick.
Worthy was a second-round pick by the Packers in 2012 out of Michigan State. Green Bay moved up eight spots to pick him.
The Packers clearly felt Worthy was not worthy of making the roster again, compiling just 2.5 sacks in 16 games played and only four starts since 2012.
The Patriots defensive line already includes stars including Chandler Jones, who led the team in sacks in 2013, as well as Rob Ninkovich, Tommy Kelly and former All-Pro Vince Wilfork.
The Patriots also drafted Florida DT Dominique Easley in the first round of the 2014 draft.
