Report: Patriots have tryout for DT Spencer Johnson

Veteran defensive tackle Spencer Johnson tried out for the Patriots on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPNBoston.com reported.

Johnson, 31, spent the last five seasons with Buffalo. He notched 19 tackles and two sacks in 14 games as a reserve in 2012.

The Patriots have made some changes at defensive tackle in the offseason, adding ex-Raider Tommy Kelly and letting go of Kyle Love and Brandon Deaderick.

Johnson (6-3, 304) has primarily been a backup throughout his career, but he started 11 games two seasons ago for Buffalo. He’s notched 303 tackles and 14 sacks in nine NFL campaigns. In New England, he would likely provide an experienced option behind Kelly and Vince Wilfork if added to the roster.

    I don’t want to hear about anything concerning the Patriots defense unless it involves improving their reliably bad defensive backfield.

    The Pat’s are like Wiley E. Coyote continuously being run over by the Acme delivery truck.

    It’s the same glaring weakness every season.

    C’mon Bill…Fix it!!!
