The Patriots did add some considerable talent over the course of the offseason so far by bringing back Van...

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports Related: Patriots free agency analysis: Matthew Judon is a three-down addition to New England’s front seven The New England Patriots’ top-ranked defense took a major step back in 2020, in large part due to the offseason departures on the defensive edge. Versatile linebackers Kyle Van Noy and Jamie Collins left via free agency, while equally flexible Dont’a Hightower decided to opt out because of concerns about the Coronavirus pandemic.
