Who said the Patriots haven't done anything in free agency?

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, defensive end John Simon is expected to return to New England as the two sides are working on a deal that could be finalized Wednesday. Simon signed with the Patriots last season after being released by the Colts, and did a solid job in 11 games.

Over those 11 games, Simon had 17 tackles and two sacks, while doing what the Patriots asked in setting the edge.

The 28-year-old was an underrated, valuable member of the team and a good player to keep in the fold.
