01:03 PM ET 03.15 | The Patriots are bringing in defensive reinforcements. After signing a couple offensive players, wide receiver Danny Amendola and running back Leon Washington, the Patriots have turned toward the defensive side of the ball. They'll host defensive end John Abraham and safety Adrian Wilson on a visit tomorrow, according to NFL Network. Of course, it's possible the Pats have met with other defensive players under the radar, but these are the most high-profile targets since free agency started. Abraham, who turns 35 in May, has at least 9.5 sacks in his last three seasons (13.5 total) for the first time in his career. The defensive end market, like every other position this week, hasn't hit it as rich as originally presumed. Cliff Avril signed a two-year, $15 million contract with the Seahawks yesterday, and Michael Bennett inked a one-year, $5 million today with Seattle. Abraham could conceivably get less due to his age.

With this crew of oldies but goodies, they will once again be serious contenders.

With the emergence (hopefully) of Vereen they should be OK.

Hopefully.

The diminutive one was a favourite of mine.

If they snag them.

Here's hoping.

They have some serious making up to do after losing Welker.
