Pats take flier on once-promising pass rusher Trevor Scott


Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe reports that the Patriots have signed Trevor Scott, formerly of the Raiders.

Scott was one of the NFL’s most underrated young pass rushers during his first two seasons. He’s struggled mightily since, in large part due to injuries.

Scott still has young legs, though, and the Patriots can offer him a chance for playing time because they need edge rushers. Scott can pressure the quarterback from linebacker and defensive end.

He could two years ago, at least.

Scott was the No. 93 player on the PFT Hot 100.
