Patriots release Clayborn, sign 6 to add depth on both sides

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The Patriots have released veteran defensive end Adrian Clayborn and signed six players to offset free agency losses on both sides of the ball.

The 30-year-old Clayborn was released Friday after one season in New England and just a day after the Patriots traded for another veteran edge rusher in Michael Bennett. In addition, the Patriots also re-signed defensive end John Simon and added lineman Mike Pennel, who together with Bennett will try to make up for the production lost after Trey Flowers signed with the Detroit Lions.

Simon was originally signed by the Patriots last September and appeared in 11 games with two starts, totaling 17 tackles and two sacks. He also played in all three playoff games last season and had a half-sack in the AFC championship game.
